The Spanish Minor is designed to provide students with an advanced level of language proficiency and a strong understanding of the cultures of Spanish speaking societies. Besides equipping students with the necessary tools to become excellent communicators and rigorous thinkers, the minor also equips students to live and work within an increasingly international context. Given the numerous hemispheric trade agreements, the significant presence of Latina/os in the U.S., the considerable number of Spanish speaking transnational immigrants and the importance of Spain in the European Union, minoring in Spanish also grants the student an advantageous position in the job market.
