Allegheny College offers a major and minor in Spanish and instruction in the Spanish language through the department of World Languages and Cultures. For Allegheny’s Learning Outcomes for the study of world languages and cultures, including Spanish, please see the “World Languages and Cultures” section in this Bulletin.
Students who major or minor in Spanish are encouraged to participate in the area studies program in Buenos Aires, Argentina; Quito, Ecuador; Querétaro, Mexico; or Seville, Spain. These programs offer courses in Spanish language, civilization and culture, literature, art history, politics and economics. Required courses for the major may be taken through participation in an approved program of study abroad with the exception of FSWLC 201, SPAN 580, SPAN 600, and SPAN 610.
International Economics and Business
Those students wishing to pursue a career in language with a focus on international economics or business should combine their study of a particular country and language with a background in economics. If students are majoring in Spanish and minoring in Economics or Business, they should take SPAN 220, SPAN 315, SPAN 360 and one other course at the 300-level as part of their requirements; SPAN 405 is encouraged. Students may also select a double major in these two disciplines. In addition, students are encouraged to study abroad and to complete an internship either abroad or with a company engaged in international trade. For economics courses that complement a Spanish major or minor, see the course of study described under International Economics and Business in the “Economics” and “Business ” sections of this Bulletin.
