School of Arts & Humanities
The Spanish program emphasizes the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. While the primary focus is on developing competency in communication, the secondary Spanish licensure program and the Spanish minor provide a foundation in the literature and culture of the Spanish-speaking world.
Graduates may pursue careers in teaching, in translating and interpreting (with additional study), in the tourism and hospitality industry, or in the diplomatic services. Spanish is a valuable asset in international business and in international agencies. In certain regions, Spanish is necessary for elementary and high school teachers of all subject areas and for social service careers.
Why learning a second language is important
- Speaking more languages can boost economic growth
- Americans are losing out because so few speak a second language
