What You Can Do with a Major in Spanish

At Aurora University, you will develop an understanding of Spanish that will prepare you for a variety of professions and give you an advantage in almost any field you choose. Our program will engage you in a global community and through small, hands-on classes, you’ll learn to read, write, speak and listen through immersion into the Spanish language.

Fluency in a second language will help make you more marketable in a variety of fields. And depending on your professional aspirations, you may combine your Spanish major with a second major or minor in another academic area.
