Lead with Spanish

Speaking Spanish can be a significant competitive advantage that sets you apart from your monolingual peers. In fact, language skills are among the top eight skills required of all occupations — no matter your sector or skill level. The Spanish minor at SDSU consists of courses that develop the communicative and cultural competence skills critical to today’s labor market. Credits can be earned with language for professions courses, through service-learning/study abroad or through an established internship program in Valencia, Spain.

Undecided or still deciding on a major and future career?

If you are uncertain about your major and have questions about career planning, you are not alone. Choosing a major or career can be a very difficult decision. The exploratory studies program may be a good fit if you are unsure of your major and career focus. Entering the university in the exploratory studies program will help you gain confidence and valuable insights on majors and minors available at SDSU and future career choices. 

In addition, FOCUS 2 Career, a self-guided assessment, education and career planning program, will help you reflect on your values, interests, personality traits and skills to provide valuable insight as you explore major and career choices. SDSU students may access FOCUS 2 Career by using their student email and password. After completing FOCUS 2 Career, you may find it helpful to discuss your results with a career coach in the Office of Career Development.
