Classification: Minor

Foreign language minors greatly enhance a student’s career prospects. The Spanish minor provides the opportunity to develop language proficiency as well as expand knowledge of Hispanic linguistics, literature and cultures. In addition to providing students with linguistic competencies and communication skills, the Spanish minor offers a global perspective. Therefore, in addition to language acquisition, our courses develop a variety of topics including, cultural awareness of the diversity in Spanish-speaking communities, film studies, literary history, and other topics.

The total number of courses required for the minor is 6 (18-20 semester hours).
