Master's degree in Applied Linguistics as well as Spanish as a foreign
language for international students. Full time faculty teach an

departmental and institutional duties. The department has recently
opened a Language Learning Center, which also requires faculty
involvement. All official business is conducted in Spanish; however,
fluent English skills are helpful.
