Minor in Spanish
Program Contact: Luis Arata 203-582-8658
Spanish is the official language of 21 countries and territories, and is spoken by nearly half a billion people around the world. Acquiring a basic foundation in Spanish can be a valuable asset in many fields, from government and business to health care and education. Though not as comprehensive as our major, this program will immerse you in the language, offering each course entirely in Spanish. You’ll gain a cultural understanding of Spanish-speaking countries and communities around the world.
You’ll have the flexibility to shape your minor and hone your language skills in electives that explore a broad range of topics from culture to literature. Quinnipiac’s Albert Schweitzer Institute is an exciting resource, sponsoring service trips, educational projects and internship opportunities in countries including Nicaragua, Guatemala and Costa Rica.
The minor in Spanish offers students a solid foundation in Spanish and a well-rounded entry to the Spanish-speaking cultures with practical benefits in travel and work. The minor includes six courses (18 credits), all of which must be taught in Spanish. At least two of the six courses must be at the 300 level. A grade of C or higher must be achieved in all courses for the minor. At least 9 credits must be taken on campus.
