Communication and critical thinking skills in Spanish through the study of materials related to science. The course engages students in class discussions about a variety of topics in different formats, such as book chapters, articles, film, art, and literary works. The course is divided into five units that will allow the study of specific geographies, topics, and cases in the Spanish-speaking world. Assignments include a research proposal and visits to the National Zoo and the National Museum of Natural History. No technical knowledge is necessary, as we will emphasize the language of science, not the content itself. Taught in Spanish.
