Spanish Major with Inclusive Adolescence Education


Return to ACADEMIC PROGRAMS A-Z Return to: ACADEMIC PROGRAMS A-Z

The purpose of the major program is to educate students to think and perceive rationally and critically. This education includes reading and thinking; learning about literary and cultural movements; and making connections between the primarily aesthetic literary artifacts of the culture and its political, social, and economic history.

Through the Emerson Foreign Language Laboratory, students use technology and media at all language levels to allow them to communicate effectively in the world. Likewise, they are encouraged to prepare themselves philosophically and practically to make linkages between the major and other academic disciplines.

The student majoring in Spanish learns about the world of ideas and letters, past and present. This education requires at least one semester of study abroad; one year is recommended. The cohesive, integrated program of foreign language, culture, history, interdisciplinary studies, and literature courses ensures maximum proficiency in the target language.

For students pursuing careers in education a minimum GPA of 2.7 is required for student teaching.

All Nazareth students complete Core Curriculum coursework as part of their degree requirements. The Core provides a foundation in the liberal arts and sciences while guiding students to pose and explore their own intellectual questions.

  • to help seniors synthesize the subject matter of the four-year learning experience
