Spanish Program at Carroll College

What to Expect

The Spanish Program immerses students in the language to ensure proficiency and

practicality in speaking, reading, and writing. Spanish language students also explore

the geography, literature, and cultural history of Spanish-speaking nations.

Furthermore, Spanish majors develop an understanding of linguistic foundations as

they achieve conversational and technical fluency. All Spanish majors must spend

from four to six weeks in a nation where Spanish is spoken. Graduates of the program

go on to careers in medicine, media, human services, business, diplomacy, and


Life After Graduation

A degree in Spanish or another foreign language can create great career opportunities

for students who are bilingual. In addition to occupations that are readily identifiable

with a degree in Spanish such as teacher, medical professional, translator and

interpreter, this degree can prepare students to enter other careers such as business,

government, media, human services, library and information science, and the travel

industry. Spanish graduates have gone on to pursue Master’s degrees at schools

such as Montana State University, Arizona State University, University of Washington,

and University of Minnesota.


Travel opportunities to Spanish-speaking nations range from short-term trips to semester abroad programs. Recently, Spanish professor Alexis Rincon and business professor Beth Wilson led a trip to Peru.
