Spanish at UVU:

In the United States, Spanish is fast becoming second to English in usage. A language of practical utility, great literature (Don Quixote), and wide applicability (in North, Central, and South America, as well as in Europe), Spanish proficiency is a necessary skill for navigating today’s world, with over 500 million speakers worldwide.

Spanish is increasingly necessary for professional work and communication in the United States. Spanish-speakers have more job opportunities with higher pay, particularly in the medical, legal, and media fields. In the Department of Languages and Cultures, we're meet that demand with expanded Spanish for the Professions courses and a minor in Spanish translating and interpreting
