Spanish

A major in Spanish provides students with many job opportunities. It teaches a language through which students develop analytical thought, cultural knowledge and expands students’ view of the world around them. A degree in a foreign language can prepare students for various career opportunities including, but not limited to, consulting, teaching, editing, international affairs, travel or communications, government affairs and public relations.

The Spanish Department emphasizes language acquisition in listening, speaking, reading and writing and prepares students for the Spanish major whether the focus might be literature, linguistics or culture and civilization.
