With a minor in Spanish at St. Joseph's University, non-heritage speakers become proficient in speaking, listening, reading and writing the language. Heritage speakers have the opportunity to hone their skills in the language. Because Spanish is the second most-spoken language in the United States, more and more companies are hiring bilingual applicants.
No matter where your career takes you, you’ll be better prepared for your future with a minor in Spanish.
"Having a minor in Spanish has opened my eyes to considerable cultural differences between my own and those abroad when I went to Nicaragua in a study abroad program. This minor has complemented my mathematics major with a focus on actuarial science by developing my social skills and awareness, while also fitting perfectly into the required coursework."
Expand Your Area of Study: A minor in Spanish complements majors requiring culturally meaningful interactions with Spanish speakers, such as psychology, criminal justice, business, hospitality and tourism management, and nursing, among others.
Non-Heritage Speakers: Are you a non-heritage speaker who feels passionate about languages? A Spanish minor will give you the opportunity to develop and advance your language skills to become part of our global, translingual community.
Being Bilingual Pays Off: Salary.com reports that bilingual employees earn 5 to 20% more per hour than employees who communicate in one language.
