Bachelor of Arts in Romance Languages

The Romance Languages major is a comprehensive degree that gives students a thorough preparation in at least two of the following languages: French, Italian, and Spanish. The language courses help students develop their writing and speaking skills while those in linguistics present language in a more theoretical way, taking into account regional, social, and historical variation. Culture courses introduce students to the artistic and cultural trends of the major French, Italian or Spanish-speaking countries over the many centuries of their existence. In the literature courses students read major works by many different authors, improve their language and analytical skills, and study cultural and social issues.

Requirements include a total of 54 credits: 36 in a Primary Romance Language, with at least 30 of those credits in upper-division courses, and 18 in a Secondary Romance Language, with at least 12 of those credits in upper-division courses.
