Bachelor of Arts in Spanish
Students who do not intend to teach in American public schools may complete the Spanish major without teacher-certification. It requires 32 credits of coursework, which includes study of Spanish grammar, conversation, composition and literature. This standard academic major will prepare a student for traditional graduate programs in Spanish language and literature, and it will make study-abroad experiences with Spanish-speaking cultures particularly accessible.
Students who complete the Bachelor of Arts in Spanish may go on to graduate school and complete a Masters or a Ph.D. in Spanish. For such students, many opportunities for college and university teaching exist, worldwide. Evangel alumni who acquire graduate degrees are especially well suited to teach in Christian higher education institutions, many of which have Spanish degree programs to meet the growing demand for professionals with Spanish literacy, particularly in the United States.
Students who do not intend to teach at the college level may find this major helpful in securing jobs for which fluency in Spanish is a requirement. Combined with another major or minor, the B.A. in Spanish can be a particularly potent qualification for such employment across a wide range of professions.
