Spanish Media

Minor

Produce and publish your own Spanish media content for student media.

You’ll refine and improve your Spanish-language skills while applying it to real-word Communication courses.

What You’ll Study

In this program, you’ll learn to communicate information and express opinions with a variety of audiences in Spanish. You’ll be able to articulate a rich understanding of your own linguistic and cultural identities and use reasoning, problem-solving, and decision-making skills to connect with a variety of multilingual and multicultural situations. Upon completion of the minor, you’ll be able to investigate and create Spanish-language content based on a deep understanding of the connection between languages, cultures, and the communities they represent. You’ll also analyze the way media interact with and affect society at the individual and macro level.

Graduate as a competitive candidate for future employers

Cal Lutheran is one of the only private liberal arts institutions in the nation that offers this minor. This program is ideal for students who are comfortable using Spanish, especially heritage speakers, as a certain level of Spanish experience is needed to produce content. As California and the nation become more bilingual, employers are demanding more Spanish-language expertise from their employees. You’ll graduate with an impressive résumé, strong Spanish-language writing samples and a network of Spanish media professionals.

My experience teaching Spanish media at Cal Lutheran has been positive. It helps enhance students’ learning by reinforcing concepts presented in class and allowing them to see the connections between the Spanish language and cultures, which in turn help with developing critical thinking and sparking deep and meaningful discussions. Students experience these connections in many ways; one is by working on content for El Eco.
