Spanish Degree

Why Spanish?
Spanish is important because of the proximity of our Spanish-speaking neighbors. It is necessary to form close, clear, cultural, and commercial ties with them. The courses in Spanish are planned to give the students an insight into Latin America, its Spanish origins, and its diversified national developments, as well as a foundation for efficient communication skills in the Spanish language.
