The Spanish Major (BA)

Associate Professors: John Herda and Monica Rodriguez

In a world where all fields of endeavor are becoming increasingly international and multicultural, fluency in another language and an understanding of other cultures have become keys that open a wide variety of opportunities — both personal and professional. Spanish majors have the opportunity to develop a facility in the use of both spoken and written Spanish and to build a knowledge of its literature and cultural heritage. The major prepares students for graduate school, teaching, or a range of professions grounded in bilingualism.

Students may skip SPN 101 and 102 if they have equivalent language proficiency. 

NOTE

* Students may use SPN 101 and 102 to satisfy core requirements. 

NOTE: To graduate with a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from Lyon College,
students must successfully complete a minimum of 120 semester credit hours comprised of
our required Core curriculum (44-48 hours), the requirements of at least one major (credit
hours vary per major), and a selection of our Liberal Arts electives. They must also earn at
least a 2.00 cumulative grade point average for all work taken at Lyon College and a 2.00
