A description of the Spanish Program at Western
Western State Colorado University Spanish Program allows its majors to study the language, literature, history and culture of Latin America and Spain. Graduates of the Spanish Program are expected to understand and generate language at a very high proficiency level; therefore, reading, writing, listening and speaking are emphasized all four years.
All Spanish students are exposed to literary pieces from a variety of time periods and genres. In addition, as part of their education they are also introduced to interpreting techniques and strategies that they put into practice serving as voluntary interpreters within the community.
The Spanish Major prepares students for positions with the federal government in areas that serve Spanish speakers, major corporations concerned with international business, as medical or judicial interpreters and also as Spanish teachers.
Our Program offers the option of a Secondary Licensure Emphasis that qualifies students for the Colorado Licensure in Spanish Education.
