The Spanish program at CWU offers a major and minor in Spanish.  Classes are small and student-centered.  Students develop language proficiency and in-depth knowledge of culture through coursework that covers Spain, Latin America, and the U.S. Latino populaion.  A solid background in Spanish language and culture is an asset to students who seek post-grad careers in education, international business, translation and interpretation, hospitality and tourism, and more.
