Hispanic Studies Degree

From the United Nations to the developing economies of South America, Spanish is one of the global languages of business.

Organizations need people who can communicate effectively with the hundreds of millions of Spanish-speakers worldwide. If you have a knack for understanding new cultures — and perhaps a touch of wanderlust — a Hispanic Studies degree is a great way to launch your career on an international stage.

Our Hispanic Studies Program

Unlike many traditional majors in Spanish that emphasize literature, our Hispanic Studies curriculum combines business study with exploration of language, culture, history and contemporary affairs in the Spanish-speaking world. Our degree focuses on the three principal Spanish-speaking regions: Spain, South America and the Caribbean. 

Hispanic Studies Tracks

We’ve designed the major for both native and non-native speakers of Spanish through a two-track system. You’ll be required to complete an applied learning experience specific to your track.
