BA in Spanish


The BA in Spanish is a balanced program of major study in Spanish, language skills development, Peninsular (Spain) and Latin American cultures, politics, history, art, music and literature. Students may elect to minor in French, Applied Linguistics, or in another field of interest.

Globalization and the continuous expansion of international relations  makes knowledge of and fluency in Spanish a critical skill for today’s professional. BA Spanish graduates can pursue careers in many fields: education, research, translation, interpretation, diplomacy, banking, technology, commerce, public health, media studies, business, law, and journalism to name a few. The demand for multilingual personnel  has been growing and extends to all fields of enterprise including non-profit organizations.

While at Plymouth State University,  our students are encouraged to study abroad. We have a direct exchange program with the Universidad Austral, in Valdivia, Chile for the same price as the PSU tuition with a financial aid package if applicable. We also have numerous study abroad opportunities in several Spanish-speaking countries, such as Spain, Puerto Rico, Argentina, and Costa Rica.
