In the Language and Literature Department, students will have the flexibility and faculty support to design a course of study that will help them achieve their educational and professional goals. For some students this may mean a Spanish education major, for others a double major in Spanish and Marketing or a minor in Spanish with a major in Psychology. The faculty in the Language and Literature Department is committed to working closely with our majors and other departments to offer courses that deliver a rigorous and purposeful learning experience. Please review the program requirements and course descriptionsin the SXU Academic Catalog for more detailed information.

The first option for the Spanish major includes a minimum of 33-36 credit hours in Spanish beginning at any 200-level course. It is designed to provide a solid foundation in Spanish language, literature and civilization to students who want to become teachers or go to graduate school.

This second option is intended primarily for those students who plan to make use of the Spanish language in a professional environment other than teaching. It requires a minimum of 42-45 credit hours (24 in Spanish, 21 in other discipline).
