Spanish is one of the most frequently studied second languages. Because it coexists with English in nearly a third of the continental United States, Spanish is useful to students interested in social, racial, and urban issues. The program’s courses help students master the skills of listening to, speaking, reading, and writing the language. Students examine literary works to refine and expand their linguistic ability, to broaden their cultural understanding, and to improve their ability to engage in literary analysis. Carleton offers an off-campus study program in Morelia, Mexico, and study in other Spanish-speaking regions is encouraged.
