A minor in Spanish is a very useful complement to majors in many other disciplines such as social service, nursing, teaching, business, hotel administration, etc. A very practical consideration must be mentioned: Spanish is the second language of our country. Increasingly, employers in government at municipal, state and federal levels and business as well as related careers, are viewing such experience and language skills very favorably.
