Aims of the Department

The Spanish language and Hispanic culture have rapidly gained importance and influence during the past two decades. More than 400 million people in twenty-five countries speak Spanish, and it has become the second most prevalent language in the United States.

The growing preeminence of Spanish makes it an ideal complement to any liberal arts education. Indeed, Spanish, or another modern language, is a degree component of all B.A. programs at Southwestern Adventist University. Spanish opens doors to both personal and professional development, and it is a working language of many international organizations and corporations. Professionals in many different fields including business, theology, medicine, international relations, journalism, and education - use Spanish daily.

Southwestern strongly encourages students to study a foreign language, and Spanish at Southwestern is a great investment in a promising future.
