Spanish Capstone

Course Description

In this two-month seminar students will demonstrate the knowledge they have learned in their core courses. Students will develop a portfolio consisting of their revised papers and new essays to create a final project. There will be a final capstone paper for this course.

Learning Outcomes

  • General knowledge of the aesthetic, historical, and sociopolitical development of the Spanish speaking world.
  • Completing the portfolio allows students to reflect on their previous work by revising it and creating an impressive final project, which will be the culmination of their finest efforts.
  • Increase familiarity with the specific terminology needed for a critical reading of literary and cultural texts.
  • Awareness of the most significant authors, themes, and issues of the period and region.
  • Deliver presentation in Spanish.
  • Given that course discussions will be conducted in Spanish as well as written assignments, students will strengthen their language skills as they examine and interact with the linguistic richness of the diverse texts read in class.
