Description: The Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies considers the study of Spanish and Italian to be essential components in the acquisition of a liberal arts education. The mission of the Department is to lay a linguistic foundation and promote the knowledge of the literature and cultures of Spanish, Latin American and Italian societies, to which many North Americans have strong historic ties.

Students wishing to obtain a B.A. in Hispanic Studies or Latin American Studies pursue, in addition to language courses, a track of studies in Spanish and Latin American literature and culture. These courses are varied in content and provide the opportunity for intensive study. They range from medieval Spanish literature to the contemporary literatures of Spain and Latin America. To receive the Co-op notation upon graduation, undergraduate students must perform satisfactorily in each of the required work terms. The Humanities, Fine Arts and Professional Writing Co-op Program is designed to provide students with an academic background and certain skills appropriate to a wide range of careers.
