Majors in a foreign language may lead to a variety of careers in fields such as international affairs, international business and finance, translation, publishing, interpreting, social work and education, as well as to graduate work.

The Spanish major provides instruction in the language, literature and the cultures and civilizations of Spain and Spanish-America. Introductory courses offer panoramic overviews of the cultural and literary developments; the more advanced courses examine major authors, significant works and important themes. At any level, representative literature is studied both as artistic achievement and as cultural expression within a socio-historical context.
