Spanish

The Program of Concentration in Spanish is designed to provide the student with a level of fluency applicable to a variety of professional situations and gives the student insight into the thought patterns of Spanish and Spanish-American culture.

Major requirements include oral and written control of the Spanish language; familiarity with all periods of Spanish and Spanish-American literature, and basic understanding of the historical and cultural development of Spain and Spanish America. A minimum of ten semester courses beyond Spanish 201-202 are required and must include: Advanced Spanish Grammar and Composition (SP301-302), Introduction to Spanish and Spanish-American Literature (SP357-358) and at least two additional literature courses
(one in Spanish and one in Spanish-American literature). Because of the comprehensive nature of the survey courses (SP357-358), these two courses would normally be taken at Saint Anselm College. At least five of the ten courses must be taken at Saint Anselm College.
Spanish majors interested in teaching Spanish are required to successfully complete a Spanish immersion program for at least one semester (or equivalent summer program) in order to receive a teaching certificate.
