45 years of academic excellence

The Liberal Arts explores the dynamics of human experiences, personal identities, cultural and cross-cultural expressions and practices, and philosophical beliefs regarding human life and existence. As a community of learners, students deepen their understanding of history and prehistory, literatures, languages, religions, gender, ethnicity, class and race, and social and political actions.

Central to liberal arts education at San Diego State University, the College of Arts and Letters offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in the humanities and social sciences through 18 academic departments and through interdisciplinary programs. The courses are designed to help students gain competencies required for professional life, lifelong learning, and citizenship in a global community.

Graduate Program in Spanish

The Master’s Program in Spanish is designed to prepare students for a career in teaching, and to further the professional development of those working in the field of second language acquisition, heritage, and foreign language education. It is also intended for those students who wish to pursue doctoral studies in Latin American and/or Spanish.

Major in Economics

Economics analyzes the ways in which societies decide what to produce, how to produce it, and who gets it. Economics majors find employment in financial services, marketing, retail, transportation, management, policy analysis, teaching, and other fields. It also serves as an excellent major for law school or other professional training.
