Overview

To ensure a hands-on learning experience, the Spanish major requires an immersive semester in a Spanish-speaking country to help you better grasp the concepts from your Taylor University Spanish classes and take another step toward becoming bilingual. Take Spanish history, literature, culture, and communication classes in foreign locations, such as Spain, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Chile, Peru, Cuba, and Puerto Rico, among others.

Whether you're pursuing a career in business, missions, communications, or government, a Spanish minor will strengthen your language skills and deepen your cultural understanding to further qualify you for your role. Take the core language requirements for a Bachelor of Arts degree, then complete your minor with a study abroad experience.

Benefits of a Spanish Degree

Spanish is one of the top five languages in the world and is rapidly becoming necessary for a broad spectrum of careers. Bilingual graduates interested in living abroad will have greater opportunities in Central or South America or the Caribbean after learning Spanish. With the drastic and continuing growth of Spanish use in the United States, a Spanish degree also will open many domestic employment opportunites.
