¡Bienvenidos! Exploring a Second Language

Studying a second language teaches students to communicate with people from other countries and cultures, and makes them more competitive in today’s global market. In addition to building proficiency in speaking, reading, writing, and listening in a second language, our coursework cultivates critical thinking and analysis through engagement with a range of cultural products, including art, film, music, and literature.
