Language and Culture Programs
Spanish/Latin American Studies
Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the U.S., with an estimated 400 million Spanish speakers worldwide. Being proficient in Spanish and its cultures is of particular importance in California, where the number of Spanish-speaking households continues to increase.
French remains the most widely spoken European language outside of English. It remains the language of refinement and culture, and through francophone literature reflects a uniquely global diversity of cultures based solely on language.
