The multicultural world in which we live requires increased communication among varied and often divergent cultures. Learning a new language and its culture enables students to cross cultural barriers and to achieve a more cosmopolitan, open-minded, and sensitive view of the world. The major seeks to ensure that students become as fluent as possible and introduces them to relevant cultures. For this reason, students take a number of language classes as well as literature, cinema, and general civilization courses. In addition, students are required to participate in study abroad and are urged to consider participating in international co-op, which prepares students to function on an everyday level in a foreign country. A major in Spanish can form the basis for careers in teaching at the elementary, secondary, or college level; international business relations; government service; journalism; library science; international affairs; travel; and community service, especially in Spanish-speaking areas.
