Language is power

Smarter decisions, greater earning potential and a broader view of the world are a handful of benefits learners of a second language have over their monolingual counterparts, according to current language research. Pursuing a degree in Spanish opens the doors for communication with hundreds of millions of people in their native language abroad and in the United States. This program explores the Spanish language and the cultures of the world’s Spanish-speakers.

Teaching that opens doors

Share the joys of the Spanish language and the diverse cultures of its speakers by pursuing a license to teach Spanish. Pairing a Spanish major with a teaching license from Monmouth’s teacher-preparation program gives students the opportunity to teach in private and public schools. Our majors help future students expand their horizons and enjoy the cognitive, economic and cultural benefits of multilingualism.
