If you’d like to develop the necessary skills for speaking, reading, and writing Spanish, Cumberlands offers a minor program in the language.
What Can I Do With This Degree?
Spanish and English are two of the world's languages with the largest number of speakers. This means the possibilities are practically endless! Here are just a few ideas:
1. Teacher - certain areas of the United States continue to experience teacher shortages in foreign languages.
2. Translator - you can do this full time, or you can pick it up on the side.
3. Librarian or researcher - language skills are a huge asset to anyone looking at research-related careers.
4. Law enforcement/national security - more and more police departments, as well as the FBI and CIA, need people who can communicate in more than one language.
5. Diplomacy - just imagine, a career in Europe, Africa or South America. You don't have to be an ambassador to play an important role.
