In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

Welcome to the Spanish program at GSC! Whether you are interested in majoring in Spanish Education (5-Adult) or minoring in Spanish, we are here to help you on your path to becoming a global citizen. Studying Spanish at Glenville State College will not only prepare you to communicate in a second language but also introduce you to the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. You will be learning about music, food, art, traditions and much more.

Beginning, intermediate, and advanced learners will spend five semesters in language courses where speaking, writing, reading, and listening skills are emphasized. Majors and minors (or other advanced learners) can select upper-level courses where they may study Hispanic film, current events in the Hispanic world, or representative literary works of Spain and/or Latin America.

In today’s multicultural world, Spanish proficiency gives you an edge if you are interested in pursuing a career in business, the health-care professions, or law enforcement. Near-native proficiency opens up doors to you internationally as well as right here at home in our secondary schools.
