What will I learn?

A major and a minor in Spanish with an emphasis in literature or culture are offered through a comprehensive array of courses taken at Saint Francis University. SFU students also take advantage of many study abroad trips, including exotic locations like Spain, and Costa Rica, where they are able to earn credits, get internships, immerse themselves in the culture, and have fun!

The study of Spanish can also be incorporated into a program leading to elementary and secondary teaching certification. For teaching certification, consult the program requirements under Education. Other employment opportunities are provided upon request by the departmental advisors and the Office of Career Services.

Because Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the United States, acquiring a Spanish major is a fantastic way for students to develop a technique that makes them more marketable in their respective careers. Many students choose to couple their pre-determined major with a Spanish major so they can better serve a diverse population.
