Major

Spanish language majors will follow a track of courses designed to develop their Spanish language proficiency and cultural understanding. These courses will focus on language and cross-cultural competency.

Cadets can choose from a Spanish language major or combine Spanish and another language for a dual language major. Each of these options can be taken as an honors program. Language majors also work well as part of a double major with another department.
