Spanish is one of several major languages spoken on the Iberian Peninsula and throughout Latin America, as well as in various regions of the United States. The Spanish from The Ohio State University introduces them to the study of literary works and helps them develop an informed awareness of the respective cultures.
The knowledge of a second language is helpful in acquiring strong writing skills and in developing cultural competencies necessary for engaging in diverse marketplaces. Employment in almost any field is open to a language major, especially in companies that do business with overseas clients. This can range from banking to public relations to computer programming and beyond. Knowledge of a second language is also helpful in health care, social work, and federal, state and local governments.
The department offers courses to help students explore different career pathways and develop professional vocabularies in business, the arts and humanities, and STEM fields. Additional course work is also available for students interested in working as translators or interpretors.
Ohio State graduates with Spanish degrees have worked as Spanish teachers, members of Congress, loan and mortgage officers, technical writers, lawyers, FBI field agents, U.S. postal inspectors and more.
