Program Overview

The ability to communicate in more than one language has become a prized skill in the global marketplace. The foreign language major prepares students for this changing marketplace. In the United States in particular, Spanish has become one of the most widely used languages other than English. The Spanish track is designed for students interested in the Spanish language and Spanish-speaking cultures. Students will develop reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in Spanish and be prepared to use the Spanish language in their field of interest upon graduation. Study abroad, Spanish clubs, internships, and other activities are also available to promote language proficiency. The program consists of 30 hours of upper-division Spanish classes.
