Hispanic Literatures and Cultures

Explore the rich literature and culture of the Hispanic world by engaging in various Hispanic texts from medieval literature to modern Hispanic theater. While you analyze these compelling texts through close reading, you’ll build on and employ the use of critical and theoretical approaches to Hispanic literature and ways in which they can be applied to teaching.

By immersing yourself in the analysis of Hispanic cultures, presented through a framework of cultural theories, you’ll discover issues pertinent to these cultures as well as your Spanish-speaking classroom. In the Hispanic Literature and Cultures track, you can combine your passion for these evolving Hispanic experiences while cultivating your own Spanish-speaking and pedagogical skills.
