Do you love studying languages? Can’t decide between French or Spanish? Then the romance languages minor is for you, as it combines advanced course work in both languages with a semester abroad in either a French- or Spanish-speaking country.

The 22- to 23-credit minor is ideal if you wish to go into careers in international ministry or business, or to work for a development agency. Fluency in a second language is also a way to stand out from other applicants in the U.S. job market. You may complete the minor through course work in Spanish at George Fox or by spending one semester in an approved study abroad program in either a French- or Spanish-speaking country, gaining cross-cultural experience and literacy in the process.

The program is designed for students already proficient in either French or Spanish who wish to acquire an intermediate/high to advanced proficiency in both languages in all four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking), as defined by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).
