Major/Minor Image

The Spanish minor examines Spanish language, culture, history, and literature. Students who choose this minor often major in business, education, nursing, journalism, reconciliation studies, or biblical and theological studies.

Why should I study Spanish?

Spanish isn’t just a foreign language anymore—it’s currently the second most commonly spoken language in the U.S and the national language in 21 countries in Latin America and Europe. Spanish is a high-demand language in many fields, including education, business, healthcare, communication and marketing, and psychology. By developing a deeper understanding of culture and identity, you’ll be equipped to engage with Spanish-speaking people from all over the world. 

What skills will I develop?

With a minor in Spanish, you'll be prepared to:

  • Engage meaningfully with other cultures
  • Use critical theory to unpack issues of power, race, gender, and social class
  • Practice empathy and openness
  • Adapt to new places and situations
  • Thrive and establish lasting relationships in Spanish-speaking cultures
  • Understand your own culture and other cultures
  • Think critically
  • Communicate effectively in writing and speaking

You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in the R.E.A.L. Experience—a program specifically designed to help you gain the relevant, hands-on experience employers desire—so that when you graduate, you’ll be as impressive in practice as you are on paper.
