Undergraduate Degree Plans
The Department of Modern Languages offers a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major and a minor in Spanish, a minor in Translation Studies, and an Associate in Arts degree in Spanish Translation.
These programs of study are designed to develop effective oral and written communication skills and to provide students with the requisite knowledge of the literary and cultural traditions of the Hispanic World that can prepare students for a variety of careers in education, translation and interpreting, government and business that are open to bi-literate students with a Liberal Arts background in the new global society. Modern Languages, as a liberal study, involves literature, history, psychology, sociology – indeed, culture in its particulars as well as its universals. In this respect, the Modern Languages faculty believes that language studies offers an education that is as much a preparation for life as for employment.
