Connect To Purpose

A degree in Spanish from Bethel prepares you for a wide variety of professional options. As the world grows ever smaller, proficiency in a foreign language is becoming increasingly valuable in many fields. For example, one graduate is deputy executive director of Amnesty Inter­national USA, while others have served around the world with mission and service organizations. Another alumnus, after earning degrees in law and international relations, is an attorney with the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Post-graduate careers include:

  • Theology
  • Anthropology
  • Business and finance
  • Mass communication
  • Chemistry
  • Literature
