As we enter the new millennium our global community becomes ever more closely knit together, and besides being increasingly knowledgeable in one’s academic field, the successful citizen of the future will need to be attuned to at least one other culture. The Spanish faculty at Truman State University enthusiastically accepts the challenge to prepare its students for leadership roles in the coming decades as citizens of the world. (more)
Meet the faculty with areas of expertise in modern peninsular Spanish literature (18th-20th centuries), colonial and 19th century Latin American literature, language syntax, Golden Age literature, medieval Spanish, and 20th century Latin American literature.
Take Spanish at any level (elementary, intermediate, and advanced), Spanish for Business, Intensive Spanish (the basics at an accelerated pace), and Portuguese. Advanced courses in literature, conversation, linguistics, cinema, and civilization inspire further intellectual inquiry.
