We offer two sequential introductory courses, SPAN 2200 and 2250, to help you prepare for culture and upper-level courses as well as to help you develop the literacy skills needed to use Spanish in formal/professional settings. We do this by:
- Promoting the development of literacy and written skills in the Spanish language for use in formal and professional settings;
- Promoting critical skills to continue developing the linguistic repertoires that students bring to the classroom, including the study of variation and code-mixing in Spanish/English;
- Building greater awareness of the value of US Latinx culture and language; and
- Creating a community of like-minded learners, providing support for students' educational trajectories.
