Minor in Spanish

TeotihuacanThe Spanish Minor at HPU enables students to achieve a level of proficiency in the Spanish language adequate for both academic and professional purposes. The Minor stresses the development of effective speaking and writing skills in the language in order to facilitate the students’ ability to converse in Spanish on non-specialized topics and also to aid the student in reading Spanish language materials for research.

Students will examine Iberian and Latin American societies and cultures through the use of both literature and contemporary media, such as online newspapers and movies. This will facilitate more effective and meaningful interaction in Spanish through cultural awareness and understanding.  

HPU offers undergraduate, degree-seeking students opportunities through our student exchange programs to study Spanish in Peru and in Spain.
