For decades, many Americans thought that it was sufficient to be a speaker of English. With our changing cultural landscape, it has become more apparent that knowledge of another language is advantageous and perhaps a necessity for living in a globalized world.
The Spanish language ranks second in the world in terms of native speakers, behind only Chinese. The Spanish-speaking population in the United States has continued to climb rapidly.
This makes a Spanish major an ideal choice for foreign language study. In fact, the U.S. government is among the largest employers for foreign language speakers.
Whether your ultimate career goal is in business, diplomacy, education, health care, law, social services, government, communications or many other fields, fluency in Spanish and an understanding of the Spanish culture is sure to open many doors for you.
