Spanish is one of the major languages of the world and also the language of the fastest growing minority within the United States. The Hispanic world has a long and rich tradition, and it will continue to be important socially and economically on both a national and international scale.
Employers are increasingly looking for job candidates with the ability to communicate with Spanish speakers. BGSU offers its Spanish majors the chance to develop linguistic and cultural competencies for interacting effectively with others in Spanish. Graduates are finding numerous opportunities for international careers in Non-Governmental Organizations, health and social service professions, international relations, diplomacy, and international business.
Another common career opportunity for students majoring in Spanish is the teaching profession, and BGSU offers preparation for teaching Spanish at all grade levels. For more information about becoming a teacher, consult the School of Teaching and Learning (STL) in the College of Education and Human Development. http://www.bgsu.edu/catalog/EDHD/EDHD37a.html
