Spanish at Carroll College
The Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzín Program in Hispanic Studies and Languages is committed to providing students with the skills needed to communicate clearly in Spanish in both formal and informal settings. While learning and developing language skills, students are introduced to, and expected to think critically about, global issues, social awareness, current events and cultural production (literature, film, art, food, music and theater). Students are immersed in the language and culture and complete the program feeling confident in their ability to speak, read, and write in Spanish. They also gain a broad understanding of Latin American and Spanish history, culture, and contemporary social issues.
Why Spanish at Carroll?
Carroll's Spanish program offers small class sizes of 20 or less students and provides an opportunity for close communicative engagement with fellow students and faculty. Spanish majors can work closely with faculty on unique projects that cater to their professional goals and interests.
A degree in Spanish creates career opportunities for students who are bilingual and culturally competent. In addition to occupations that are readily identifiable with a degree in Spanish such as teacher, medical professional, translator and interpreter, this degree can provide students with an edge in entering careers in business, international relations, government, media, human and social services, library and information science and the travel industry.
