Spanish 340: Masterpieces of Spanish Literature. A study of representative works and literary movements in Spanish (Peninsular) literature from Medieval Ages to present. Students will learn to use the methods and language of literary analysis and will make connections between literature and its cultural context. The use of online materials, films, music and other resources will be implemented for a better understanding of literary topics. 




Spanish 202: Intermediate Spanish II. As a last step of the language sequence, you will practice structures that you will need to communicate effectively in Spanish. The class is aimed to help students to develop essential skills like speaking, listening, reading, and writing in Spanish. Even if your Spanish may be a little bit rusty oroxidado after the intersession, you will feel comfortable after a couple of weeks practicing and interacting with your classmates in the target language.
