The Languages Program currently offers two emphases in Spanish: liberal arts and secondary education. The program offers a wide variety of classes covering the language, literature, and culture of Spain and Latin America. There are also career-oriented classes such as Spanish for Translation, Spanish for Health Professions, and Spanish for Business. The Spanish student organization, El Parnaso, is one of the oldest on campus. The San Luis Valley is a rich cultural area to study the Spanish language. In addition to the diverse indigenous populations that form the basis of its human geography, it has a deep political and cultural history as a territory of both Spain and Mexico before becoming part of the United States in the mid-19th century. Introductory courses in Japanese and occasionally French may be offered.
