Why Study Spanish Language and Literature?

Learn about the language and cultural histories of Spain, Spanish America, and Latino communities in the United States. Because so many facets of North American life-business, industry, commerce, communications media, the arts, science, and technology-have become truly international in scope, many career opportunities exist for persons with language skills and knowledge of other cultures. You can also choose to combine Spanish with a double major in another field such as biology, economics or political science to broaden your career options.

AREAS OF STUDY:
  • Spanish Conversation and Composition
  • Spanish-American Literature
  • Hispanic Linguistics
  • Hispanic Literature and Culture
