Hey Spanish minors!  Check out these Spanish Minor Tips put together by our WLC advisor, Danielle Batson! 

Why learn Spanish?

  • With over 35 million Spanish speakers in the United States, the U.S. has the 5th largest Spanish-speaking population.
  • In today's diverse work environment, speaking Spanish is always preferred and often required as part of many careers. Learning Spanish will open many doors and provide you with an instant competitive advantage.
  • Due to the similarity between English and Spanish words and because written Spanish is almost completely phonetic,  it is one of the easiest foreign languages to learn.  

Below you will find the Spanish major and minor descriptions and requirements.  In addition please explore our unique Advanced Spanish Learning Community, an intensive, team-taught course in which learners gain knowledge and skills needed to interact with Spanish-speaking communities through the interdisciplinary exploration of a single theme.

Our web page will be updated soon with more information about our Heritage Spanish Program.  To learn more about what heritage Spanish courses are; how and why they are taught, read this article in Hola Cultura, a nonprofit online outpost that shares news for and about the Washington DC area Latino community. For questions about our Heritage program, contact: Loren Chavarría at lchavarria@oregonstate.edu.

NEW! Both the Spanish B.A. and the Spanish Minor are now offered fully online as wel!.
