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 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 meeting that demand by expanding our Spanish for the Professions courses in Fall 2021. 

New Courses for Fall 2021:

In the Spanish language program, we will be adding more courses to the Spanish for the Professions for Fall 2021:

- Spanish 2100-Spanish for Social Workers

- Spanish 2110-Spanish for Nursing

Both courses require a 2010 level, with a focus on the specific vocabulary and conversational context for students for future professions in these fields. Both of these courses reflect the Department's and Spanish language program's committment to preparing our students for their future careers.
