Over the past decade, southwestern Missouri’s Hispanic population has continued to grow. Students who major in Spanish will have the opportunity to learn to speak to others in their native tongue and to gain knowledge about their customs. Since Crowder’s mission is to develop the student beyond course content the Spanish courses focus on Communication and Culture Awareness.
Learning a second language encourages diversity, motivates or strengthens concern for world affairs, extends international business/marketing strategies, and enables global travel opportunities. Classes in Spanish may be used to fulfill Humanities requirements in other AA programs and would be beneficial in almost any career field in the 21st century. A Spanish major may be used in teaching, government, foreign service, translating, and many other careers. A Spanish minor may enrich opportunities for students in Business, in the Social Sciences, in Nursing, and in Agriculture, for example.
Free Spanish tutoring available in the Academic Resource Center (ARC) and through Student Support Services (SSS).
