Dr. Rafael Sanchez, a native of Spain and a respected educator of the Spanish language, has joined the faculty of William Carey University as professor of Spanish.

Dr. Sanchez will provide senior faculty leadership for the new Spanish major, which launches in the 2014-2015 school year. He will also work to develop and strengthen study abroad programs in Spanish in both Spain and Latin America.

The aims of the English courses are to help the student learn to write with a high level of accuracy, effectiveness, and fluency; to give emphasis to research techniques, particularly for prospective graduate students in English; and to help the student to develop the ability to read critically and appreciatively the best of English, American, and continental literature.

The aims of the foreign language courses are to develop foreign language skills which enable the student to engage in oral and written communication with other peoples of the world and provide an auxiliary skill in professions; to develop in students a linguistic sense  sufficient for students to be able to compare a native tongue with other languages; to give the student through  readings in foreign language a background of culture of the nations using this language; to enable the student to read scientific, literary, and other texts in a foreign language.
