Carroll University’s Spanish program provides you with direct linguistic contact with a culture different from your own. It’s the key to understanding one another—and the world. After all, a culture expresses itself primarily through its language and its literature. 

Learning outcomes

In the Spanish program, you’ll acquire indispensable skills in communication, training in problem-solving and the kind of understanding of cultures other than our own that is possible only through language. You’ll learn to speak, read and write Spanish fluently and you’ll study phonetics and Latin American or Hispanic history and culture. As a Spanish major, you’ll spend a summer, semester or year abroad, for a truly immersive experience in another culture.

Programme Structure

  • A Spanish major is a natural complement to many other areas such as business, pre-law, pre-medical programs or to such fields as English, fine arts, theater arts, history, political science, communication, psychology, mathematics, sociology or the natural sciences. 
  • In our program, you can easily add a second major in Spanish to your studies and still graduate in four years. If you cannot complete a full second major, a minor in another field is very common, as is a language minor to accompany some other primary specialization.
