Spanish Language and Culture / Minor
Minor Credit Hours: 18
As the Spanish-speaking population of the United States and the world continues to grow, the demand for bilingual and bicultural professionals in nearly every field will grow as well. In addition, as that population derives primarily from Latin America and as Inter-American Studies are becoming both more prevalent and critical, students with a minor focused on Spanish within and across the Americas should be very competitive on the job market and able to contribute more meaningfully in a number of intercultural, employment, social, and community service settings. Heritage speakers must consult the Director of the Foreign Language Program when selecting language courses for this minor. Spanish Language and Culture minors are encouraged to pursue a second minor in Latin American and Latina/o Studies. Consult the Program Director of the Latin American and Latina/o Studies minor. Two upper-division courses and three additional credit hours in a Foreign Language minor may not be applied to another minor or any major offered at Lewis University.
I. Required Language Courses (9)
II. Elective Culture Courses (9)
Choose three courses from at least two different departments. Topics courses and seminars must be related to Spanish-speaking cultures and/or nations.
III. At least two courses in the minor must be at the 30000 or 40000 level.
