Spanish Program

A major or minor in Spanish can prepare a student for a career as a teacher, law enforcement officer, translator, interpreter, social worker, public relations officer, sales representative, or manager with a large number of businesses which are seeking bilingual employees.

The demand for college graduates with bilingual skills is steadily increasing. In addition, a strong background in Spanish can complement any field of study. Spanish majors must take the Spanish assessment examination during the last semester before graduation. The completion of the Spanish major will also prepare a student for graduate studies in Spanish or linguistics.
