Around the world there are more than 400 million Spanish speakers. Learning to speak Spanish is the key to success in a wide variety of careers particularly in business, tourism, communication, medicine, and education.


As the Hispanic population in the U.S. has grown by 60 percent in the past decade, the need for employees fluent in Spanish has similarly increased. A degree in Spanish helps prepare students for jobs in teaching, as translators and interpreters, in government work and much more.

Why this program
