Spanish (minor)

A Spanish language minor may be used with any major in the University, including areas such as business, social work, psychology, education, and science. Students will gain a significant auxiliary skill with the acquisition of a foreign language. The Spanish language offers learning experiences that prepare students to understand the language at the conversational level and to use it in a variety of settings. The Spanish language minor will prepare the Bowie State graduate to move into a variety of employment areas or to continue graduate studies at schools where a foreign language is a prerequisite for admission.
