Why It Matters: ¿Tienes prisa?

In this module we will cover themes related to the university or college experience such as classes, majors, and locations in higher education. Interestingly enough, many of the majors in Spanish sound familiar to the English speakers. For example, matemáticas is mathematics, psicología is psychology and arte y diseño is art and design. Sometimes your knowledge of English can help you learn new vocabulary.

Can you guess what these titles mean?
