Spanish Language and Cultures minor

Main page content


Note: Spanish Language and Cultures major students cannot minor in Spanish Language and Cultures.

The Spanish Language and Cultures minor combines Spanish language skills with a general knowledge of the cultural, historical and political context of Spanish America.

In the minor we emphasize the relationship between language and culture. Students train to interact with native Spanish speakers more effectively. As a result, students will benefit when entering education, government, public health, social work, community services, banking, international business, law, the travel industry or any other field where the rapidly growing Latino community is involved.

Declare your minor by completing the Request to Declare/Change a Major or Minor form and submitting it to the Office of the Registrar. You must have earned a minimum of 45 credits and declared a major before declaring a minor. If you have questions about this process, please see your advisor.
