DescriptionChoosing to study Spanish at Acadia will take you beyond the acquisition of a new language - it will immerse you in another culture and open new opportunities. 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.
