Proficiency in Spanish opens doors to other cultures and is an advantage in our increasingly interconnected, globalized world. Spanish prepares you for a wide range of careers, from diplomat to international business consultant or translator to educator or journalist. AUM’s Spanish major is designed to give you command of the spoken and written language, and a familiarity with Spanish-speaking cultures. If you opt to participate in this shared Spanish program with the Auburn campus, you’ll be able to take Spanish language courses at Auburn and participate in Auburn’s study abroad programs in Spain, as well as AUM’s study-abroad programs in Mexico.
Points of Pride
- The program offers Study Abroad in San Cristóbal de Las Casas, Mexico.
- Small classes: upper level courses usually have fewer than 12 students per class, so students get plenty of opportunity to practice their skills.
- Our instructors, with Ph.D.s and master’s degrees, speak Spanish with native or near-native fluency.
