Minoring in Spanish involves the study of how to speak, write and read the Spanish language. In addition to learning grammar, syntax and vocabulary, you will study literature written in Spanish, including the literature of Latin America and Latino communities in the United States. You’ll gain valuable communication, language and leadership skills as you take 24 credit hours toward a Spanish minor in conjunction with a different bachelor’s degree major. You’ll also experience real learning beyond the classroom, with study abroad opportunities if you are interested in a full cultural immersion or with a nearby internship. Because we design our Spanish program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant minor because Spanish proficiency is increasingly appearing in job descriptions as a desired or required qualification. It can increase your employability for a variety of opportunities in education, business, government, legal advocacy, journalism, tourism, agriculture, healthcare and other fields.
