California Polytechnic University, Pomona
The Spanish major develops expertise in language, literature, linguistics and culture in equal measure to prepare students for graduate study and a variety of careers in the workplace.
We boast a strong faculty--actively publishing and engaged in scholarly research--in both linguistics and literature. Through our linguistics courses, students develop detailed knowledge of the intricacies of Spanish. Our literature and culture courses provide them with essential cultural reference points while stressing the skills in reading, writing, argument, and analysis expected of liberal arts majors. The goal of our program is to equip students--both heritage and second-language learners--with a high level of trans-lingual and trans-cultural competence, preparing them to act as informed and capable interlocutors with educated native speakers. In short, we want our graduating seniors to be able to carry themselves well in professional situations in Spanish.
