Foreign Languages


Are you ready to immerse yourself in one of the world’s most dynamic languages? At Birmingham-Southern College, our Spanish professors teach small, student-focused classes with the goal of preparing you to speak and understand another language as a practical skill. Our classes give you the tools you’ll need to use the language you choose in your life and your career. At every level, we’ll focus on the practice of all four language skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. You can also:  

  • Combine basic language skills with specialized professional vocabulary in health care or business by pursuing a minor in Spanish for the Workplace. Our Spanish Across the Curriculum program combines language study with specific fields, such as a biology or chemistry.

  • We have a vibrant Spanish learning community on campus, which gives you the chance to use and improve your skills outside of the classroom, whether through conversation tables or the chance to make formal presentations in Spanish before a group.

  • Explore beyond language alone. BSC’s Latin American Studies Program offers interdisciplinary courses in the social sciences, natural sciences, and the humanities; creates connections with  the Latino community in Alabama; and hosts an annual symposium that draws speakers and students from colleges and universities across the country and gives a unique opportunity for BSC students to share their research.
