Hispanic and Italian Studies has been awesome
for me, not just because of the small classrooms, but because I have a large community of students
and professors around me that I’ve been able to have a really positive relationship with. The fact that it’s a small department actually
helps in a way because it’s so tight in it and they’re so invested in helping you succeed. We learn history, we learn literature, we
learn film, and it’s all to get us immersed in the language cause a lot of the language
is, it’s almost learning a different way to think. It’s not just learning the words to put together. Learning different cultures and languages
is really beneficial for me because I’m planning to specialize in international business, and
obviously having a background in some kind of other culture and knowledge of some
language could be helpful for me in the future.
