Overview

Students within the Spanish program of Rockford University develop the ability to understand, speak, read and write in a second language effectively while gaining a better understanding of other cultures and other modes of expression in order to broaden international awareness.

Careers and Internships

The B.A. program in Spanish, in addition to preparing students for teaching or graduate school, gives students a useful and valuable tool for a large number of careers, especially for those in which contact with Spanish-speaking peoples is likely, such as in education, public and social services, health services, law, recreation programs, the tourist industry, business and banking, government, library work, publishing, etc. As a result, it is an excellent second area of specialization that combines well with many other disciplines; a growing number of students have chosen to major both in Spanish and another area (i.e., history, sociology, business administration, child development, political science, etc.).
