The Spanish major is designed to be flexible, creative, and meet a host of different goals, allowing students to develop the advanced linguistic skills and forms of cultural competence so frequently sought in today's globally competitive and interconnected world. Students will choose between two concentrations. Option A equips students with the necessary knowledge, tools and abilities to become competent interpreters and translators. Option B is designed for students who wish to pursue a more general course of study of the varied cultural and literary histories of the Spanish speaking world. Graduates will be prepared for a number of jobs in government, nonprofit agencies, and the private sector, as well as entry into graduate and professional schools.
