- This information is for students who declared a major in Spanish before the Spring 2012 semester
The Spanish Major offers a strong and varied program in the languages, histories and cultures of Spain and Spanish America. Majors may begin this study with survey courses in Spanish and Spanish-American civilization and literature and proceed to an in-depth exploration of selected areas.
The Language Track examines the history and structure of the Spanish language. Courses explore interdisciplinary perspectives on advanced and comparative grammar, Spanish semantics, and varieties of Spanish, among other topics.
The Literature Track explores the historical, cultural, and literary dimensions of the Spanish-speaking world. Courses offer an interdisciplinary approach to topics such as Don Quixote, the practice of autobiography, women in Spanish literature, the cultural history of the Spanish Caribbean, and the literatures and cultures of Latin America.
Our Spanish Major also offers majors in both tracks the opportunity to study the theory and practice of translation.
