The Department of Hispanic Studies strives to develop effective communication, critical thinking, imaginative inquiry, and community engagement in student’s preparation for life in a global society. The department is committed to delivering high quality courses in a wide breadth of areas and seeks to expose students to the language and cultures of Spain and the Americas with classes at all levels conducted in Spanish. To prepare for life in a global society, faculty encourage students to engage in cultural and social activities in communities beyond our campus, and serve as strong role models by continually expanding their own instruction, research and scholarship.
