Minor in Spanish Language

As our country’s Spanish-speaking population continues to grow, so does demand for people who can read, write, and translate the language.

The Spanish minor at Spring Hill College provides students with valuable working knowledge of Spanish language, cultures, literature and philosophy. Our expert faculty provide you with a learning experience that can sharpen your speaking, writing and conversation skills.

Dominique Howard '17

After starting classes at Spring Hill, I soon determined that I had a real passion for education, language, and children. I plan to teach through the Peace Corps or Jesuit Volunteer Corps after graduation, and then later use that experience to instruct inner-city high school students in Spanish language, history, and customs.
