The mission of the Spanish Program is to prepare students for life, work, service and scholarship in Spanish speaking communities within the U.S. and abroad. We seek to guide students to develop holistic, integrative reasoning as the foundation for service to others, work in the professions and further academic study in Spanish.
Upon completion of the Bachelor of Arts in Spanish, students will be able to:
Demonstrate the acquisition of advanced cognitive and linguistic knowledge.
Formulate questions about cultural and linguistic difference and critically evaluate other cultures in relation to themselves.
Demonstrate the ability to interact effectively in a cross-cultural context, whether local or global, while exhibiting humility in relation to other cultures and languages.
Demonstrate the ability to integrate their faith into cross-cultural interactions in the target language.
Demonstrate advanced target language proficiency in oral communication by engaging in conversation in a clearly participatory manner.
Demonstrate advanced proficiency in the written language by reading and interacting with texts across a range of genres and topics and writing formal and informal correspondence, narratives, descriptions, and analyses, all in the target language.
