Requirements of a Concentration in Spanish for the Professions within the Spanish Minor

The concentration in Spanish for the Professions is designed for students who anticipate careers in which they will need to interact with Hispanic communities in the U.S. or abroad and who wish to continue the study of Spanish language and culture for specific professional purposes: business, industry, commerce, civil service, law, media, economics, health and social sciences.

The concentration in Spanish for the Professions has the same basic requirements as the Spanish minor, but four of those 22 credit hours must be fulfilled with four one-credit hour courses focused on Spanish for the Professions: Spanish for Healthcare Professionals, Spanish for Business, Spanish Translation and Advanced Spanish for Healthcare Professionals, Advanced Spanish for Business, or Advanced Spanish Translation.
