What is A Spanish minor Degree?
Earning a minor in Spanish while working on another degree makes good sense. Do you know why? Knowing how to speak a foreign language and knowing something about the culture will open more job opportunities to you and maybe even help you earn more money. Spanish is known to be one of the easiest languages to learn, especially for English speakers. A lot of people speak Spanish, including customers who want to buy products, business people who want to be understood in their dealings with corporate leaders, nurses and doctors who want to communicate with more patients, even politicians who want to speak to more voters. Some jobs may even require candidates to be bi-lingual.
It may be easier than you think to add Spanish as a minor to your degree work in the allied health field, in business, in education, in engineering, in just about anything. Sure, it may take you a little extra time to complete your degree, but it probably will be worth doing. Depending on the college or university, you may only have to take 5 courses in Spanish to qualify for the minor. Sometimes one of these courses can be in Spanish literature or culture which may be taught in English! Plus, you might be able to get it done through studying abroad—what’s not to like about that! Be sure to check out this possibility. Wouldn’t it be nice to be in demand when you’re looking for work after college?!
