Spanish is the third most common language worldwide after Mandarin and English, which makes Spanish a popular subject when preparing for international employment.
Spanish is an important language in Europe and the Americas, and it is the second language spoken in the United States. As a student taking a Spanish major at Acadia, you will acquire familiarity with the language, grammatical practices, literature, and culture. The ability to communicate in a different language broadens an individual's appreciation of other cultures and increases opportunities in the job market. The study of languages also helps you develop stronger communication and critical thinking skills, useful to a wide variety of professions.
