Marywood Modern Languages provides students with instruction in language learning, literary studies, and critical cultural studies.

We offer majors in Spanish (Traditional BA and Applied BA), Spanish Secondary Education, and minors in Caribbean, Latinx, and Latin American Studies as well as Spanish for Professionals. We also offer courses in French and Italian. Specifically, our Italian courses support the Art and Architecture Departments’ study abroad program in Florence, Italy. In line with the Marywood Core, all students will acquire linguistic proficiency at the intermediate level in their chosen language(s).

Our faculty each possess distinct specializations and teach a wide array of courses in language, literature, and culture. In addition to classroom instruction, a Spanish major has the opportunity to acquire real-world experience through one of our various study abroad programs, as well as to undertake independent research. Our students have presented their research at national and international conferences, published encyclopedia entries with faculty members, and have attended competitive institutes in preparation for graduate studies. Apart from strengthening student research, our language program has also produced Fulbright scholars who have taught English in Spain, Andorra, South Korea, and France. 

In our program:

  • We use the most up-to-date conversation-based practices
  • We familiarize students with the major currents of Hispanic, Latinx literatures, arts, and cultures
  • We build research skills and encourage hands-on learning beyond our classrooms
  • We work with a variety of majors and professional programs to offer flexible minors and an applied major in Spanish that provide students with marketable language skills.
