Students pursuing a minor in Spanish gain an understanding of the language, literature and cultures of Spanish-speaking peoples and regions. The minor in Spanish will provide students with the opportunity to gain oral, reading, speaking and written proficiency in the language. There are opportunities to partake in study abroad programs, which can serve to enhance a student's minor experience and education. Knowledge of multiple languages and intercultural competencies enhance any occupation and offer graduates many career opportunities.

Career fields using languages include advertising, marketing or communications, airline industry, film, television or multimedia, hospitality industry, hotel and resort management, international law, international education and study abroad administration and more. Please note, students may only apply to a minor in combination with an existing degree program. Please speak with your academic advisor to ensure this minor is applicable with your major.


A student wishing to pursue a specific minor should consult an academic advisor in the unit offering that minor to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. The student should also consult an academic advisor in the college or department of the major to make sure the college or department of the major allows the recognition of the minor.

Note: Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate either by the college or department of the major or minor. Courses taken as part of a minor may not count toward both the major degree and the minor. Please contact the department for more information.
