Minor in Spanish
As more and more companies expand their operations across national borders, the need for employees with global skills and additional languages has become essential. Spanish - the second most common language spoken in the United States - is rapidly gaining popularity throughout the world and is becoming increasingly important in many fields, especially business and industry, education, government, and health care. Having knowledge of Spanish language and culture not only expands your horizons, but also it can increase your marketability in today's competitive global economy. In fact, your ease at navigating a foreign environment can help increase your productivity on the job.
