Show future employers that you have the language skills and cultural competence to communicate with native Spanish speakers – it’s the perfect addition to any bachelor’s degree.
Students with an interest in the Spanish language and the countries/cultures in which it is spoken (including the US) will fit perfectly into SOU’s Spanish Language and Culture program. Whether entering with some language proficiency or none at all, students will hone their language skills while studying Spanish-speaking literature, film, art, and culture, and discovering how historical and political contexts shaped each of these phenomena.
The Spanish minor requires 24 upper division Spanish credits. Examples of recent offerings include topics like Violence in Latin America, Topics in Hispanic Film, Spanish Phonetics/Phonology, Great Works in Hispanic Literature, U.S./Latino Issues, and many other topics. We encourage students to take advantage of the many study away opportunities to complete up to 16 of their credits while living in a Spanish speaking country.
The Spanish minor combines well with any major on campus. The cultural competence and language proficiency that students develop will allow them to better serve the growing Spanish-speaking community in the United States.
