Open the door to cultural and global literacy.
Are you fascinated by other cultures? Did you grow up hearing Spanish spoken at home? Do you want to join an ever-expanding global economy? Join us in discovering the cultures of the Spanish speaking population!
Spanish is the second most spoken language in the US, and has the second highest number of native speakers in the world – which means that gaining fluency in Spanish can open up whole continents worth of culture, business, and politics. You’ll be able to follow your passions into all corners of the world while expanding your career opportunities at home and abroad.
With a BA in Spanish, you’ll be prepared to apply your linguistic knowledge to a wide range of professions, including teaching, international business, reporting, translating, museum education, and community health.
Combining your Spanish studies with other areas within the liberal arts will also work to widen your career opportunities. The most common double majors to combine with Spanish are Education; Social Work, Human Services, and Counseling & Psychology; Business Management; and Political Science or Sociology & Social Change.
Whatever career you pursue, you’ll hone the critical thinking and analytical reasoning skills needed to learn a new language, as your courses guide you through Spanish literature and cultures from around the world.
