Potential Careers

“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.”
