You’ll find Hastings College alumni with Spanish degrees teaching in Headstart programs, starting their own companies, working for businesses and organizations, and sharing their passion for Spanish with students and communities at all levels.

Fine-tune your skills at home and abroad

Opportunities to fine-tune your language skills include exciting study abroad programs — through one of our exchange arrangements and during Hastings College’s unique January Term (J-Term) experience.

As you gain experience, your fluency in and familiarity with Spanish and its related spoken and written dialects will expand, as will your understanding of cultural experiences. You’ll be ready to enter the workplace with real-world (and very marketable!) language skills.

Go further with a Hastings education

You’ll open up a world of opportunities! Our small class sizes help you excel and allow you to easily pair a Spanish degree with another degree of interest – and still graduate in four years. Our four-year guarantee is here to back it up. This means you’ll work closely with your advisor to chart a course in your major. With so many jobs and organizations being global or looking to hire graduates with a knowledge of language, Spanish is a great option!
