Spanish Program

Español is a Romance language originally from the northern area of Spain. It is the only official language covering the entirety of Spain, most Latin American countries and one of the official languages of Equatorial guinea.  

The language was spoken by roughly 364 million people worldwide in the year 2000, making Spanish the most popular Romance language, and probably making it the third most spoken language in the world by total number of speakers. It is also the second most widely spoken language in the United States and arguably the most popular foreign language for study in US schools and Universities
 
Within the globalized market, there is currently an international expansion and recognition of the Spanish language in business, literature, the film industry, television, and music.
 
Having a Spanish major is in high demand. Students with an AA degree in Spanish explore Spanish language and culture. Spanish is not just about words and grammar; it is also about new sounds, expressions, and ways of seeing things. This degree provides students with the opportunity to learn about other cultures. Students who graduate with an AA will be at an intermediate-low to intermediate-mid ability, according to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. Although careers in this field typically require a bachelor's degree, having an AA in Spanish can be an asset to any future career path, including nursing, psychology, education, legal, and public service.
