The Spanish program at Marquette provides students with the opportunity to develop linguistic proficiency in one of the most widely spoken languages in the world while learning about the rich and diverse cultures of Latin America, Spain and the Latino communities in the United States. The goal of the undergraduate program is twofold: to master all four skills of language acquisition (speaking, understanding, reading and writing), and to gain in-depth knowledge of content areas related to language, linguistics, literature, culture and film of the Spanish-speaking world. Majors in Spanish may combine studies with other disciplines in the humanities, social sciences or sciences. Students considering careers in education, international business, medicine, law, government or communications are particularly encouraged to pursue a double major or a minor in Spanish. Two distinct majors are offered: Spanish Language, Literature, and Culture, with special concentrations including one for Education majors; and Spanish for the Professions, with concentrations in either Business or Health. Both majors also offer curricular concentrations designed to meet the needs of heritage and native speakers of Spanish. This program based on Spanish Language, Literature and Culture for Heritage Speakers. In addition to Spanish Language, Literature and Culture for Heritage Speakers, there are Spanish Language, Literature and Culture, Spanish Language, Literature and Culture for Native Speakers, Spanish Language, Literature and Culture for Education Majors also available.
