As of the fall semester 2021, the undergraduate program in Spanish is no longer offering a Minor. Courses that this program offers in the General and Liberal Education program will continue to be offered, along with a limited number of electives.
The language program provides a solid foundation in speaking, listening, reading and writing, and a broad approach to cultural heritage and literature. The program promotes the study of language as a self-sustaining discipline and life skill. The mission of the Modern Languages program is to provide a foundation for the active use of Spanish, French, and other Modern Languages in fields such as education, business, government, social services, computer science, teaching management and other careers. Our courses develop intellectual curiosity language skills and multicultural awareness.
Specific goals include:
• Creating knowledge that transforms and challenges our students’ view of the world
• Addressing the challenges and opportunities facing not only the U.S. but the 21st century’s global societies
• Fostering scholarship that honors cross-cultural and multilingual processes in order to improve cultural understanding within a diverse society
• Supporting scholarship that honors the arts, literature and history from different countries
One may minor in Spanish by successfully completing 15 credits in Spanish beyond the

reading and writing, and a broad approach to cultural heritage and literature.
