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.
It is important for any person who is involved in the media to understand how there is a lack of representation and how the existing representation is likely filled with stereotypes or misconceptions. I plan to utilize the knowledge gained from my courses of harmful article framing and portrayals in order to stray away from writing these dangerous representations.
