Spanish

Learning a foreign language is a passport to worlds previously unknown—not only as a means to communicate across borders, but also as a way of exploring cultural knowledge. You know the world to be increasingly interconnected, as globalization and technology bridge distance, uniting people and ideas traditionally worlds apart. Being bilingual is a part of your personal philosophy—to explore foreign worlds, by moving beyond your comfort zone.

Program Description

Internationalization is a key component of keeping our students competitive in a global society. Our mission is to foster language learning and to promote intellectual growth by preparing students for careers or graduate study programs. Community-integrative education is another way to foster those language skills. We believe it is important to provide a wide cross-cultural understanding and appreciation of other cultures to give our students the tools needed to succeed in their careers.
