About Spanish

For any career you wish to pursue, a Spanish major will set you apart from the crowd. Spanish is the second most spoken language worldwide, and along with polishing your resume, the major offers multiple opportunities to study abroad. You will find many job opportunities upon graduation with this marketable degree!

“Studying Spanish at GC was one of the best decisions of my life, both personally and professionally. Language study opens up a world of people, places, cultures, and ideas. And, if you’re interested in that sort of thing, it might even help you get a job!”

 - Adam Glover, '07, Assistant Professor of Spanish at Winthrop University, SC.

“Through coursework and immersion programs, the Spanish major increased my cultural awareness and ability to adapt to new environments - both of which are critical in my role at an international organization.”

 - Jordan Sanderson, '13, Bank Strategist at HSBC Bank
