Spanish Minor

Spanish is spoken in over twenty countries around the world, and has become the second language of the United States. Communication, Media & Languages  provides rigorous training in the language and culture, supplemented by several exciting overseas study opportunities. You may have the opportunity to participate in research being conducted on classroom language acquisition as well as opportunities to engage in culture and language through Hispanic culture, history, literature and film both on campus and in the community.
 

A background in Spanish opens up many opportunities in all sorts of careers, and is especially useful for government, work, international business, translating and interpreting, teaching and tourism.

Placement Examinations

We strongly recommend that you take a placement examination in Spanish if you have studied the language previously and intend to continue your Spanish studies at MSU. The placement test is available online and takes no more than 30 minutes to complete [username: morehead user, password: eagles1 (ALL LOWER CASE)]. You will automatically receive your score immediately after completing the test and must bring the results to the department chair. We will recommend placement on the basis of this score. For more information, contact the department chair, Dr. Tom Williams at 606-783-9448 or t.williams@moreheadstate.edu. It is strongly recommended that Spanish be taken freshman year and without interruption.
