The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures offers courses leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts with a major in Chinese, French, German, Russian, or Spanish. Programs are also available in French, German, and Spanish as teaching fields under the interdepartmental major for teachers in secondary schools. Arabic, Italian, and Japanese are occasionally offered on the elementary and intermediate levels. Courses in Greek and Latin are the responsibility of the Department of Classical Studies.


Transfer Credit 

In conjunction with the Registrar’s Office, transfer credit for language courses must be evaluated and approved by the language section in addition to the chair of the department. Such evaluation may include, but need not be limited to, the syllabus for the course and the test required of students showing competency in the language.


Modern Languages and Literatures

Taught in English and works read are in English.

Plan of Lower Division Language Courses

1000-level courses are beginning courses. Emphasis is on the spoken language, with extensive use of dialogues and drills designed to illustrate the basic structural features of the language and to develop oral proficiency. 

Courses numbered 1402 are a continuation of 1401 and will generally complete the study of the basic grammatical features of the language. 

Courses numbered 2301, 2401, 2302, or 2402 consist of intermediate level language study, focusing on speaking, reading, grammar, writing, and comprehension. 

Language courses 1401, 1402, 1403, 1600, 2301, or 2401 may be taken pass/fail unless the student is using them to satisfy the foreign language requirement of the Pathways curriculum. 

No credit will be given for any prerequisite course in the four-semester lower-division sequence once a student has received credit for a more advanced course.


Global Latinx Studies

Global Latinx Studies is an interdisciplinary analysis of the Latinx experience from the past to the present, in an interdisciplinary space that includes modern languages, and spans the humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences. The major encompasses, but is not confined to, the communities of the Americas, the Iberian Peninsula, and the Caribbean. It especially focuses on the Latinx diasporas throughout the world, including communities with a shared colonial past with Spain and Portugal.

Students develop their knowledge of and commitment to Latinx Studies through coursework in leadership development, intercultural capacities, and linguistic fluency as well as disciplinary courses in history, economics, cultural studies, and religion.

In addition, the program fosters close ties between the University and the Latinx community in San Antonio through internships, service-learning, and other opportunities. Majors are strongly encouraged to participate in study-abroad programs.

A signature aspect of the major will be a senior portfolio that ties together the many strands of a Global Latinx major’s course of study. This reflects on the interdisciplinary links between at least three different courses and represents the culmination of personal and professional growth in the understanding of Latinx communities in the Americas and beyond.

CHIN-3367 Comparative Views of Modern China
Description
This course represents an overview of the most important economic relationship of the twenty-first century. The global financial crisis that started in 2008 revealed just how much the strategic relationship between China and the United States represents the heart of the world's economy. China has recently surpassed Japan to become the world's second largest economy and America's third largest commercial partner. The rise of China has brought about a reorganization of the global economy and the international balance of power. This new world order carries challenges and opportunities. China remains a communist country with a significant legacy of a command economy. It is also a market economy. Understanding this mixture - capitalism with Chinese characteristics or the Chinese variety Capitalism - is the major aim of this course. We also cover topics relevant to the economic relationship between China and the USA, including international trade and the balance of trade, the Chinese currency system, the growth of China and its growing influence in the international sphere.

GRST-3315 Decadence: German Literature Around 1900
Description
German and Austrian writers from 1890 to 1910 plumbed the depths of the human psyche and chronicled social conditions from working class neighborhoods to boarding schools for the elite. They saw their culture as profoundly decayed and sought to reveal how violence and lust seethed just below society's civilized surface. This course explores how key German-language authors during this period used different literary approaches, from realism to naturalism to expressionism, to address the burning psychological and political questions of their time from the role of sexual desire in the formation of self to the possibility (or threat) of working-class revolution.

GRST-3440 Northern Renaissance Art in the Fifteenth Century
Description
The 15th Century saw an explosion in artistic production in Northern Europe. Technical advances, increasingly sophisticated markets, and an unquenchable thirst for images, meant that commissioning and owning works of art were no longer the preserve of kings and popes. The course explores this phenomenon by considering how art was made, valued, and viewed in France, Germany, and the Netherlands, from c. 1400 to c. 1500. Key themes, including the role of the altarpiece, popular devotion, technical innovations, and the international demand for Northern art, are explored through the work of Van Eyck, Van der Weyden, Memling, Schongauer, and their contemporaries.
