Spanish Program Requirements
In support of the SPU mission to cultivate graduates of competence and character, the European Studies: Spanish major and minor programs seek to further the linguistic and cultural competence of our students by affording them stimulating and demanding opportunities in classroom settings and overseas.

The European Studies option focuses on Spain as a member of the European community, its history, culture, and literature. Among many goals of this option is enabling students to discern issues surrounding Europe’s role in the modern world and hence become responsible citizens of our country where European-U.S. relations are concerned.
