Career Opportunities

Growing demand makes teaching Spanish an excellent career to pursue at this time. Beyond the opportunities available in teaching, translating, and interpreting, the growing Hispanic population is creating demand for Spanish speakers in health services, social services, legal counseling, criminal justice, business, finance and marketing. In "Career Opportunities for Bilinguals and Multilinguals" (1994) there are 47 major private enterprises, 11 government agencies, and 85 nonprofit organizations listed that specify the need for Spanish speakers to work, both in the U.S. and abroad, in fields that range from financial consulting through agricultural science to chemical engineering. The widespread need for Spanish speakers means a knowledge of Spanish opens up many opportunities, especially when combined as a minor or double major with such diverse fields as education, business, the sciences or sign language.
