Spanish is the official language of 21 countries and territories, and is spoken by nearly half a billion people. Acquiring proficiency in Spanish can be a valuable asset in many fields, from business and education to government and healthcare. 

Students have the flexibility to shape their Spanish Minor by choosing electives that explore an exciting range of topics including pre-Columbian civilizations and contemporary Latinx writers. It’s also possible to study abroad in Spain or throughout Latin America. Some students may select a semester program and others a J-term experience or an intensive summer immersion. Whether students complete this Minor in the classroom or by including study abroad, they will expand their intellectual horizons in new and wonderful ways.

To complete the Spanish minor, students must complete 18 credits in Spanish. Six credits must be at the 300 level or higher and nine credits must be taken on campus. Spanish minors who would like to apply for entrance into Sigma Delta Pi, the National Spanish Honor Society, should take at least one culture or literature course.
