Who We Are

UNC Asheville’s Languages and Literatures Department offers a Bachelor of Arts in Languages and Literatures with a concentration in Spanish.

Through the study of language, culture, and literature, students examine the human experience as an individual and in relation to their local and global community as they prepare for a career. The department encourages travel and study abroad, and faculty are either native speakers of the language they teach or have extensive experience abroad. Our small classes make it easy for students to connect with professors and receive personalized instruction.
