Spanish Club at the Peabody Museum

Enrich your life, explore international cultures and expand your global perspective. Appreciate the development and progress of other societies as you enhance your liberal arts education and career possibilities by studying languages at Albertus Magnus College.

At AMC, you can major in Spanish, minor in Spanish and study the Classics (Latin, Greek). Or get a taste for French and Italian when you sample beginning and intermediate levels in these Romance languages. You’ll discover the basics of listening, speaking, reading and writing in a second language as you expand your ability to communicate within a different frame of mind. Our friendly, accessible, professional faculty members want to help you succeed and can work with you to tailor a program of language study that meets your needs.

Incorporating lively discussions about literature, language, film and culture, most courses immerse you in the target language and prepare you for a recommended study-abroad semester, language-intensive internships or additional language courses at affiliated area colleges.

Two online courses — Italian Culture and Civilization and Spanish/Hispanic Culture and Civilization — are taught in English, as are other topics on a variety of cultures and civilizations. Many courses use intensive and multimedia presentations.

You’ll benefit from participating in Spanish Club outings and events, as well as engaging with guest lecturers such as González Echevarría, Sterling Professor of Hispanic and Comparative Literatures at Yale University, who recently spoke on Cervantes’ masterpiece for AMC Professor Christine Atkins’ Don Quijote literature class. As a top student, you may gain recognition from AMC’s chapter of Sigma Delta Pi National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society.

Prepare to teach Spanish at the secondary level (grades 7-12) by completing our program that meets Connecticut requirements for certification/endorsement. Volunteer opportunities enrich your experience in English and Spanish language instruction when you help diverse and multicultural students in offerings such as the afterschool program at St. Rose of Lima Elementary School in New Haven.

With fluency in more than one language and a deep understanding and awareness of other cultures, you expand your career opportunities in education, business, media, translation, medicine, travel and more. Your only limit is your imagination!
