Overview

Columbia College’s minor in Spanish adheres to the State and National Standards established by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. With the goal of contributing actively to one’s global awareness as a responsible world citizen, the minor is designed to complement and augment other fields of study.

The Spanish Program coordinates study abroad opportunities in Salamanca, Spain and Alcalá de Henares, Spain. Students may study abroad for a semester or a summer session. Minors have taken advantage of this experience and found it to be life-changing personally and an unmatched means of developing communicative and cultural competence.

Rapid growth in the Hispanic population and the number of international companies based in the Southeast and in South Carolina in particular have driven the demand for second-language-speaking employees.
