The Department of Spanish and Portuguese provides Spanish and Portuguese language instruction to approximately 1700 students per semester through 7 coordinated courses offered at the first, second, and third years of Spanish and Portuguese Language study, plus an intensive second-year course. The department also offers modified Spanish language courses (SPAN 1010-800; 1020-800; 2110-800) which is a curricular accommodation in the foreign languages for college students who demonstrate inordinate difficulty learning a foreign language. Moreover, students may take courses in Catalan Language courses.

We offer three different major tracks: Spanish Language and Literature, International Spanish for the Professions, and Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Cultures as well as minors in Spanish and Portuguese.
