Spanish with YOUR major

Criminal Justice & Spanish Major

I am currently double majoring in Criminal Justice and Spanish because I am particularly interested in both fields of study. I am also considering a minor in Forensics. At first, I was only interested in minoring in Spanish but then I realized how Marywood University's Spanish professors are an amazing help and inspiration to their students. I was encouraged by them to pursue a major in Spanish. I am sure that with any Criminal Justice career that I may choose it will never hurt to know another language and I believe this will give me a greater opportunity to find a job in the real world.
