  • Preparation for Graduate School — Students who earn a B.A. in Spanish at LSSU may apply for graduate school to pursue advanced studies in Spanish as either a major or minor.
  • International Business, Diplomacy and Law — In an increasingly global society, the ability to speak both English and Spanish provides students with marketable skills to function well in the world of international trade. Developing Spanish skills beyond the level of minimal language requirement classes greatly increases career opportunities for individuals in the areas of business, law, technology, and international relations. The global expansion of American companies creates a demand for those who are able to function and communicate effectively in international settings.
  • Communication — The process of learning a foreign language and understanding its embeddedness in a rich cultural and social context of diverse human efforts provides Spanish majors with a complex and comprehensive educational experience. Graduates will find an array of business related job opportunities in publishing, editing, the media, the arts, and communication.
  • Travel and Tourism — Mexico is, and for the past 20 years has been, the number one foreign destination for Americans. Consequently, there is a large demand for bilingual professionals in tourism and travel.
  • Domestic Careers in Public Services — As the latest USA census data show, the number of Spanish speakers is on the rise. As a result, there is a need for college-educated people able to effectively communicate with bilingual or Spanish-speaking populations in various areas of public service.
