As the Head of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese I am reaching out to you to let you know of an exciting opportunity for students studying in the Life Sciences program who would like to advance their knowledge of Spanish with a class tailored to their professionally specific needs. In this class, which requires a high intermediate level of Spanish, students will be exposed to science-related materials and will write a research proposal. This will be ideal for all pursuing research in the Spanish-speaking world, those applying for Fulbright, or any students in search for proficiency.

SPAN359L is designed to strengthen students oral and written communication and critical thinking skills in Spanish through the study of science-related materials. The course engages students in class discussions about a variety of topics in different formats. The course is divided in five units that will allow the study of specific geographies, topics and cases in the Spanish-speaking world. Assignments include writing a research proposal and visiting the National Zoo and the National Museum of Natural History. No specific technical knowledge is necessary but we cover a variety of topics that are for science-oriented or science-interested students. Taught in Spanish.
