Why Major in Spanish?

According to the Census Bureau, by 2050, the U.S. population will be 47% white, 28% Hispanic, 13% black and 8% Asian-American. By 2060, close to one in three U.S. residents will be Hispanic with today's multicultural population increasingly being born in the U.S. rather than abroad. Obtaining a BA in Spanish provides students with the language skills and understanding needed for careers in teaching, translation, interpretation, social work, health care, bilingual and foreign services.

“Full of life, accents, and cultural events, the Spanish program has allowed me to expand my knowledge on what the hispanic world is like. It is through learning about the literature, history, traditions, gastronomy, and art of all Spanish-speaking countries that I have experienced the past and the present of a beautiful language and culture.”
