On this page you will find information about careers pursued by Spanish majors, skills Spanish majors develop and career-related Web sites relevant to the major. Visit the department page to learn more about the Spanish program.
It is important to remember that your major does not determine what your career will be. With a liberal arts education, YOU, not your major, will determine your career path.
