Blaze your own path to Spanish fluency at Fordham.
Self-directed? Ambitious? A lover of Hispanic books, films, and cultures? If you want to blaze your own path to fluency in Spanish language and culture, the Spanish area studies major at Fordham might be right for you.
It’s a highly individualized, interdisciplinary course of study based in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures. With the help of a faculty advisor, you’ll craft a rigorous course of study that fits your passions and ambitions. Most of your classes will be in Spanish. You’ll study a broad range of topics, including art history, anthropology, political science, and visual arts.
In the process, you’ll become fluent in Spanish, refine your analytical skills, and acquire a critical understanding of Hispanic literary and cultural tradition over the centuries.
You’ll learn more than Spanish studies here. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, economics, mathematics, ethics, science, and the performing arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education.
We want you to excel in your field—and as a human being.
