Child study, with a concentration in Spanish
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience in the program. It has given me the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and appreciate literature in a different language. As a child study major, it’s important to me that I practice my Spanish to make it easier for me to communicate with students who are English Language Learners."
