Language Skills: language classes at UD aim at the acquisition of the four skills:
listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students gain knowledge and confidence
as they progress through the lower division sequence: Elementary I and II and Intermediate
I. For students who want to continue improving their language skills we offer two
upper division courses: Advanced Communication/Grammar and Advanced Composition/Grammar.
Literature, history, and the arts--in Spain and Latin America: our Second SemesterSpanish II introduces students to the heritage of Spain within the context of the Western Tradition emphasized in the Core Curriculum at UD. The survey includes literature, history, art history, and music. This interdisciplinary course is the point of departure for advanced study in literature and history.
Advanced courses in literature, history, art history, and linguistics continue our exploration of the Hispanic world. On this level students do research papers, written in Spanish, in many of the courses. Topics can be chosen from a wide spectrum of subjects.
