Spanish is the official language of 20 countries, the third most spoken language in the world and the second most common language in the United States. Our program strives to ensure that you will gain a working knowledge of a second language, which is a vital and practical skill for many careers in business, education, social services, health care and the government.
Whether you're at an elementary speaking level or an advanced, a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish will help you gain a clear appreciation of Hispanic culture. Expect your schedule to be filled with a wide variety of courses in language, literature, film, and culture, as well as study abroad experiences.
In addition to Spanish, we teach other high-demand, critical languages, such as Arabic, Chinese, German, and Portuguese.
