Majoring in Spanish demonstrates to future employers and/or graduate schools that you have achieved a certain level of linguistic ability and understanding of Hispanic cultures. Our major is designed to help students hone their oral and written language skills and to learn more about Spanish and Spanish American cultures through literature and cultural studies. This knowledge is highly beneficial for people planning to go into international careers as well as to those planning to work with predominantly Hispanic populations in the United States. A Spanish major is useful in such diverse careers as advertising, marketing, journalism, health services, government, social welfare, and public administration, to name but a few.
