Overview

The UW-Platteville Department of Humanities offers majors in
Spanish and Spanish Education. There are also two minors in
Spanish and Spanish Education for students interested in combining
a minor in a foreign language with other areas of study for the purpose
of enhancing communication skills and career opportunities. Likewise,
apart from the intellectual development that results from the study of
the Spanish language and Hispanic culture, students may also
find professional employment in many different areas, including
international business, marketing, civil service, and teaching.
