With a BA degree in Spanish from Minnesota State University Moorhead, you'll extensively study the Spanish language and the cultures in which the language is spoken. There are nearly 500 million native speakers of Spanish in the world, and Spanish is the second most used language in international communication. Because of this, you'll be highly sought after by employers who are looking for multilingual employees who can effectively and efficiently contribute to the global conversation.
