The Department of Spanish and Portuguese offers a minor in Spanish and a minor in Spanish/English Bilingual Education. The Spanish minor provides the opportunity to develop language proficiency while expanding knowledge of Hispanic cultures, literature, and linguistics. Many Spanish minors combine their studies with fields such as political science (pre-law), pre-med, communications, psychology, and economics. The goal of the minor in Spanish/English Bilingual Education is to create a pathway to better prepare students who wish to become future bilingual teachers.
