Spanish opens the door to diverse opportunities

This degree will prepare you to go out into the world and serve Christ through serving our neighbors. Often we are called to do this in a language other than English. As a graduate with a Spanish degree, you will be proficient in the language and be able to open more doors both in the employment sense, but perhaps more importantly in a Christian sense. You will be prepared to live a life of service to those in our community who speak Spanish as well as English.

Program Overview

Habla español? Is God calling you to Spanish studies in order to serve in missions or the workforce?

Employers are reporting an urgent need for graduating students to be proficient in Spanish. The United States Census Bureau reports that the Hispanic population will continue to be the largest ethnic minority in the United States. By 2060, Hispanics will make up 28.6 percent of the U.S. population. As the Hispanic demographic continues to increase, students who are proficient in Spanish will have an advantage in many professions and in life. A bachelor’s in Spanish equips students with the cultural perspective and understanding needed to connect and serve Hispanic populations. 

What to Expect

You will explore all areas of the Spanish language through a variety of activities and experiences in the Spanish studies program. And, our smaller class sizes guarantee personal attention. We offer a variety of ways to use your language skills both on- and off-campus, such as interdisciplinary volunteer events, Spanish Table, and Spanish Club on-campus. Other off-campus volunteer work and internships offer hands-on experiences in the surrounding Milwaukee community, the U.S., and also abroad. You will gain real-world confidence, skills, and experience using the Spanish language with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish.
