A student completes coursework.
Overview

Spanish for the Health Professions (12 Credit Hours)

Several major fields of study are enhanced by a minor in second language professional studies. Nursing, social work and business fields have a need for professionals who are able to communicate in Spanish. A minor in Spanish for the Health Professions makes a graduate more employable in many areas of the country where Spanish is spoken by a significant number of persons. This minor will provide not only linguistic competence, but an understanding of sociocultural aspects of these ethnic groups, which is essential to a professional’s ability to work with Spanish-speaking persons.
