Spanish Minor (18 credits)

The Spanish minor will provide students with a competitive advantage in a number of fields in which Spanish language competency and communication, as well as a global perspective, are deemed a benefit. Careers such as teaching, the medical profession, banking, business, communications, public relations, social work, and government work are increasingly valuing and often requiring knowledge of Spanish. A minor in Spanish will provide students with intermediate-high or advance-low language skills and cultural competency.
