Your future in Spanish

“Spanish speaking skills a plus” is a phrase you’ll see all over job boards. Why? Because a growing Spanish-speaking population and an increasingly global economy adds a need for employees who have foreign language skills. Possible jobs range from translator and teacher to social worker and journalist. Our graduates work for Access-York, the Department of Homeland Security, Penn State University, the United Way of York County and the York County District Attorney’s Office.
