You don’t have to travel as far as Spain to speak Spanish. The language might flourish in your own family or down the street at your local bodega. From Cervantes to Isabel Allende, the range of great literature written by Spanish-speaking people spreads almost as wide as the geography of the language itself.

As a Spanish major, you’ll be able to read the works of these great writers in the original. You’ll also read exciting new Latino writers working in the United States today.
