The Minor in Spanish, offered by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, prepares students to engage with diverse communities both at home and abroad through the development of language skills and intercultural competencies.

Spanish and Portuguese organizations and activities include Sigma Delta Pi, the National Hispanic Honor Society, the scholarly publications of the Society of Spanish and Spanish-American Studies, and the Spanish and Portuguese Clubs and Film Series.

Minors are awarded only at the time of completion of the bachelor's degree and cannot be awarded either as a stand-alone program of study or after completion of the first bachelor's degree.
