The Spanish minor gives you several opportunities to build oral and written language skills while developing cultural knowledge and understanding of Spanish. After learning basic concepts of grammar, composition, conversation, and introduction to literature, you can choose your own mix of courses at the third-year level. You can also get involved in student organizations on campus like Sigma Delta Pi (National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society) and pursue study abroad in places like Spain or Costa Rica to fully immerse yourself in the language and culture.
Because of its versatility and relevance in virtually all professions, you can use the minor to complement any degree at Truman. A particular focus on critical thinking and communication skills prepare you for diverse career paths including communications, education, government, health services, law, marketing, social services, and more.
