Spanish


UD's Spanish Program celebrates the splendor of the Hispanic World, of Hispanidad, concentrating on the grand, the heroic, the poetic, the creative, the artistic, the holy, the stoic and other admirable facets of the legacy and contemporary reality of Spain and Spanish America. The Program also offers an interdisciplinary approach to Hispanidad through courses in Spanish language, literature, history, linguistics, and art history. Finally, the courses examine the tension between the unity and the rich diversity within the Hispanic world.

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: First Year Spanish I, II and Second Year Spanish I. For students who want to continue improving their language skills we offer two upper division courses: Advanced Communication/Grammar and Advanced Composition/Grammar.

Our Second Year Spanish II introduces students to the heritage of the Spanish-speaking world 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, history, art history, and linguistics.

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.
