Hispanic Studies (Spanish)
Foreign language courses provide practical experience in oral and written communication. They also engender an understanding and appreciation in the culture of another people as expressed through geography, history, social organization, literature and fine arts. Foreign language study also gives students an appreciation of their native tongue.
The study of a foreign language and culture prepares students to use skills and understanding in careers related to education, business, government, health care and social services. It also prepares them for graduate work.
Mount Saint Mary College offers introductory courses in French, German and Italian (see course descriptions) and a major and minor in Hispanic Studies (Spanish) (see Hispanic Studies and course descriptions).
