Welcome to the Spanish Major

Foreign language studies at Le Moyne aim to acquaint students with a language, culture and civilization different from their own. As part of their program of study, Spanish majors are required to spend a semester abroad, as well as take the Oral Proficiency Interview, a linguistic competence test developed by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

Le Moyne also offers a sequence leading to New York state teaching certification for those looking to teach Spanish to others. Students will not only learn the language, but explore all aspects of the Spanish culture.

The Foreign Languages and Education Departments also offer a Five-Year Program leading to a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science for Teachers in Spanish and Adolescent Education.

Minor in Spanish Language & Literature

Students majoring in other disciplines have the opportunity to pursue a minor concentration in Spanish by successfully completing 15 credit hours in the same language beyond intermediate level. These 15 credit hours must include at least two courses at the 300- or higher level.
