practicality in speaking, reading, and writing. Spanish language students also explore
the geography, literature, and cultural history of Spanish-speaking nations.

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

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,
