Applied Spanish Minor

ETSU students have the option of selecting an interdisciplinary Applied Spanish Minor that consists of 21 credits hours. There are no minor prerequisites. Courses beyond the required classes are selected in consultation with the student's advisor.

Service Learning:

At the LCRC we provide students registered in the core courses of the Applied Spanish Minor with a variety of options to complete their Service-Learning hours serving the Hispanic community of the region. Students can work supporting our events, Hispanic Student Day, Sports 4 All, and the community favorite "Corazón Latino Festival" in downtown Johnson City. Other service-learning opportunities include teaching English as a Second Language classes at area churches, and translating into Spanish articles written by journalism students for the bilingual magazine "El Nuevo Tennessean," published yearly as a collaboration between the LCRC and the Department of Media and Communication.
