Spanish is the second most-widely spoken language in the world. A Hispanic language major provides students with a greatly enriched view of the world around them as well as Spanish language skills that will prove useful in many professional occupations. With its emphasis on research, writing and creative and analytical thought, the Hispanic major prepares students for graduate studies in Spanish and most professional schools including law, business, education and medicine. A deep understanding of this culture and language can also enhance professions such as publishing, journalism, government, military and more. Many Hispanic Studies majors combine their academic work with other areas to prepare for career opportunities in international business, travel or communications, where knowledge of a foreign language and culture are essential.
As part of AUM’s World Languages and Cultures program, the Hispanic Studies concentration enables the student to develop the five skills of Spanish speaking, reading, writing, listening and cultural competency. This area of study includes a culture track and a trade track. In the culture track, the student takes more internationally-related course work in the humanities and political science. In the trade track, the student takes courses in international economics and business. Students benefit from a wide array of study-abroad opportunities.
The Hispanic language major prepares students for a variety of professional opportunities in the United States and abroad. Students may pursue careers in education, government, law, social services, health care, tourism, publishing and non-profit organizations. Spanish majors may also continue their education with an advanced degree in area studies, business or law. Other job fields include the following:
