How many times have you been told, "Minor or double major in Spanish; it will help you get a job"?

Of course, like any other advice given to you by well-wishers, there is some truth to this adage.

Today, many students have caught the Spanish wave and are opting to minor or major in Spanish. At UW-Whitewater alone, Spanish is the largest minor.
