In addition to providing skills in understanding, speaking, reading, and writing Spanish, the major provides a greater understanding of Spanish culture and civilization and prepares students for greater international and domestic career opportunities.

Given the multinational nature of the business world today, fluency in a foreign language, such as Spanish, increases an individualʼs marketability and value in the areas of banking, consular and junior foreign service, education, import/export business, international business, international relations, medicine, nursing, overseas employment, police work, social security, translating/interpreting services, and social services.

Specific career opportunities include bilingual aide, border patrol officer, buyer, court interpreter, counselor, customs agent/inspector, foreign exchange clerk, foreign student advisor, interpreter, journalist, museum curator, physician, scientific linguist, tour guide, and tutor.
