Spanish

As a Spanish major, you’ll develop the language and culture skills necessary to communicate effectively in a foreign language setting and to promote intercultural understanding. You’ll learn to apply these skills in practical situations, including employment, and acquire the advanced language skills needed to pursue graduate study. You can also choose to pursue teacher licensure, which prepares you to teach K-12 Spanish.

As a Spanish major at Meredith, you’ll have ample opportunities to put what you’re learning to use in a real-world context. All Spanish majors are required to participate in community-based learning, which allows you to practice your Spanish and deepen your learning through experiences with partner agencies. You can also intern with local agencies, businesses, or nonprofits. And, of course, if you’re pursuing licensure to teach Spanish, you’ll complete a field placement as a student teacher.
