Besides fluency in speaking and writing, the Spanish major at Southern Virginia University explores the language, literature and culture of the Spanish-speaking world in an intimate educational setting that enhances language and cultural mastery by the small class sizes that allow professors to specifically address each individual student’s particular educational needs and interests.


Key Features

Students also have opportunities each year to visit Spanish speaking countries to immerse themselves in the language and the culture through Southern Virginia’s Travel Study program, including service and medical missions. Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world, and is the official language of more countries than any other language except English. And it is only growing in its importance on the national and world stage.

Majoring in Spanish at Southern Virginia University is a gateway to interests in a broad range of disciplines including anthropology, international studies, history, Latin American and Iberian studies, comparative literature, economics, environmental studies, humanities, and political science, education, politics, foreign service, the helping professions, travel and tourism, communication, among many.

Students majoring in these or other areas, as well as those considering a career in medicine or law, are encouraged to consider Spanish as one of two majors.
