More About the Program
Courses offered by the Spanish Program are designed to develop students' understanding of a second culture through the language spoken by that culture. The Spanish Program offers a minor, and concentrations in Spanish (Bachelor of Arts) with concentrations in Spanish, Spanish for Healthcare Professionals (Internal), Spanish for International Business and Spanish (External), and Latino Cultural Competency in Social Work (External.)
Whether the student has completed two years of a foreign language in high school or has previous learning experiences in Spanish and wishes to continue their studies at Briar Cliff, there is a pathway for everyone. Students who wish to continue their studies in Spanish at Briar Cliff will simply take a placement exam to enter at the right level and work from there to complete the required Spanish-language courses in sequence.
Spanish graduates will demonstrate a coherent progression of skills development in terms of reading, writing, speaking, and listening, along with technological awareness and cultural proficiency, while also demonstrating a broad understanding of the cultural, linguistic, and literary landscape of the Spanish speaking world.
