Careers in Spanish

Language Skills Speak for Themselves

The U.S. is home to the second largest group of Spanish speakers in the world. Being able to speak Spanish can give you access to a wider range of jobs. You could translate or interpret for others. You could teach English as a second language — or teach Spanish to high school or college students. Or you could connect with Spanish-speaking co-workers and clients in business, healthcare, tech, social work and other fields. Speaking Spanish is a key skill that will make your resume stand out to employers.

Certificates & Degrees in Spanish

If you’d like to continue studying Spanish at a four-year college, you can transfer after earning your associate degree here. You’ll complete your general ed courses before you go, so you can start with junior standing — and jump straight in to upper-level coursework.
