Spanish Minor


The rapidly growing number of Spanish-speaking residents of the United States makes becoming bilingual in Spanish an enormous career advantage for people in a wide range of fields. Students majoring in Education, International Studies, Health and Rehabilation Sciences, Criminal Justice, Business, and those planning on graduate study in Business, Law, Medicine, or Education would all do well to consider a minor in Spanish. Those who wish to practice Spanish on a daily basis have the option of living on-campus in Spanish House beginning in the second semester of the freshman year, and receive 1/2 credit for each semester of residence. Students also have the opportunity of participating in occasional travel to Puerto Rico.
