We believe that along linguistic abilities, successful communication is achieved through the understanding of the foreign culture. The Spanish curriculum does not focus heavily on literature like most traditional Spanish programs at other institutions. Here, we aim at providing students with the practical skills to communicate in the foreign language while teaching significant components of culture to help students gain a better understanding of their interlocutors' background.
