Kathleen V. Kish, Professor and Head of Department

Professors Fein, Sánchez-Boudy, Smith, Smith-Soto; Associate Professors Almeida, Campo, Goode, Koenig, Mather, Sotomayor; Assistant Professors Chesak, Paredes, Rauch; Lecturers Amat, Bender, Hill, Hunt, Levine, McLin, Raines

The Department of Romance Languages offers a variety of programs in language, literature, and culture of the three major Romance areas of French, Spanish, and Italian. Students may begin the study of any of these at the elementary level or continue it at the intermediate level. Students with one or more years of high school French or Spanish who wish to continue the study of that same language must take the Language Placement Test. Incoming transfer students returning to the study of French or Spanish begun in high school but not previously pursued at the college level must also take the test. Intermediate proficiency is expected for further work in French or Spanish; according to the studentís interests, he or she may then begin the study of literature or develop language skills in composition and conversation. Native or near-native speakers must consult with the Department Head before signing up for courses in the Department.

The Department's goals are three-fold:

1. To provide practical training in understanding, speaking, reading, and writing a foreign language;
2. To promote those values in the liberal arts tradition that derive particularly from the study of language and literature: increased understanding of language itself as structure and process, and the enlightening encounter with cultures and modes of thought different from oneís own.
3. To prepare students interested in becoming French and Spanish teachers by providing a range of courses and experiences in their prospective field.

In addition to the Bachelor of Arts degree, the department offers the Master of Arts and the Master of Education degrees in French and in Spanish.

Special facilities and features include language laboratories; the possibility of study abroad; and French and Spanish honorary societies. Achievement in Romance studies is recognized by five annual awards to outstanding juniors and seniors.

French or Spanish Major (Bachelor of Arts)

Required: 122 semester hours

The French and Spanish Majors are designed to ensure a well-rounded preparation in language and literature. The programs are balanced and comprehensive, yet they allow students the latitude to explore subjects of special interest to them. Specific course and area requirements and electives in language, literature, and culture characterize both programs. The majors in Romance Languages begin above the 204 level.
