There is presently a worldwide recognition of the importance of cultural pluralism, of understanding and appreciating other cultures. In the midst of this global movement, the Department of Hispanic Language and Literature offers students the possibility to come into contact with and learn in depth about the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world.


The use of Spanish over a wide geographical area makes the global as well as local demand for this language equal to that of English. As a result, graduates of the department have access to an ample variety of careers. This is particularly the case in Korea where the demand is strong for professionals with a proficient command of Spanish as well as strong linguistic abilities. Graduates flourish in a variety of professions, such as diplomacy, journalism, trade, politics, and finance. Many graduates of the department currently work as professional scholars of Hispanic languages and cultures and as businessmen or diplomats residing in Spanish-speaking countries.
