Spanish

This major includes the study of the Spanish language, literature and culture. A Spanish major provides students with language skills that translate into a practical tool for use in our increasingly bilingual landscape, whether this be Texas, the American Southwest, one of the many urban areas in the U.S. with large Spanish-speaking populations, or beyond our borders where over 400 million Spanish speakers reside. Above the practical aspect of the major, students of Spanish acquire a rich view of the world in which we live. Focusing on analytical and critical thinking, as well as cultural awareness, students are prepared for graduate studies, professional schools, and for professions. To enhance their career options, Spanish majors are encouraged to seek out a complementary minor or second major/degree to create even more opportunities after graduation.
