A major in Spanish is a treasured possession. A second major or a minor in Spanish opens many doors, but no matter what field a student plans to enter, be it health services, business, teaching, government, law, medicine, transportation, translation, engineering, or entertainment, a familiarity with Spanish will be invaluable. Bilingualism is almost an imperative in Southern California as well as in many other parts of our country.
