A degree in Spanish Language and Literature is a valuable choice and often a requisite first step for scholars wishing to pursue a career as a spanish rhetorician , a spanish linguistics researcher, or a spanish translator. Interestingly, nationally, spanish language and literature is a fairly common choice ranking as the 51st most popular degree. Last year alone, there were 9,277 spanish language and literature degrees conferred. In-state tuition for spanish language and literature at private colleges is, on average, 4.4 times more costly than their public peers.

With a staggering 853 universities offering this degree chances are that any institutions you are considering will have a degree program for you. If you're looking to surround yourself with other spanish language and literature students, look at institutions in California which have more undergraduates admitted to spanish language and literature than any other state. Zooming out, the best region to pursue spanish language and literature is in the Great Lakes region with Indiana University-Bloomington, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, and University of Wisconsin-Madison best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to major in spanish language and literature is the Big Ten Conference with Indiana University-Bloomington, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, and University of Wisconsin-Madison representing the conference. That being said, our choice for the best school for spanish language and literature is Harvard University. You might also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The 'best' school does not mean it is the best school for every student. There are tons of facets to consider when deciding on institution. Features like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely change one's choice on where to go to college. At authority.org, we have examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are intrigued by which spanish language and literature school has the best college campus, the answer is Harvard University. If, for example, you are very interested in which school is home to the top campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more in order to evaluate all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our well researched list for the colleges with the best student life here and, from that list, our pick for the college with the best student life for spanish language and literature is Georgetown University. Curious why? Keep reading to learn more about Authority's top choices. Some of our conclusions will probably shock you.

If cost is a significant deciding factor in your choice of where you attend university, you might be cautious about Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University in the City of New York appears to be the most expensive college for spanish language and literature, at least regarding out of state attendance. We do have a list of the most expensive universities that could put the expense at Columbia University in the City of New York into perspective. Additionally, you could be interested to know that spanish language and literature is the 28th most expensive program in the nation, with an average expense of $52,700. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for spanish language and literature nationally is Maine at Bates College and Colby College, the primary schools in the state, of $55,683 and $54,870. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region for spanish language and literature is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Amherst College with a cost of $57,640, Tufts University with a cost of $57,324, and Williams College with a cost of $56,970.

In better news, the most affordable school for spanish language and literature is University of Wisconsin-Madison. Our entire list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state students can anticipate paying around $10,200 for a degree in spanish language and literature. That cost swells substantially to a median of $23,900 for an out-of-state public-school student. Our pick for the university with the best value for spanish language and literature: Duke University. Here you will see our comprehensive list for the schools we believe to be the best value in general. Bear in mind, this section is predicated on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for spanish language and literature majors differ a lot, but two-years after finishing the degree students will regularly make around $51,100. While there is much variation in pay; top earners can enjoy pay up to $79,200. Even straight out of college, the lowest end jobs within the spanish language and literature field earn $33,100, which could be worse. The top earning grads from spanish language and literature studied at Duke University and if you are looking for schools with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The all-around diversity of spanish language and literature sits solid, coming within the 61st percentile of all majors. The university with the highest composite diversity for spanish language and literature is New York University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Spanish Language and Literature major only is in the 24th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, in the 56th percentile. White students make up the largest proportion at 55% of those studying spanish language and literature. Additionally, 74% of undergrads seeking a spanish language and literature degree are women.

The median ranking for spanish language and literature's professors is 4.2 stars, a ranking that is 5% above the median across every major; which is a good score. If you want the most popular spanish language and literature instructor in the country, take a look at Sandra Germinaro from San Francisco State University. This might be surprising, but the best ranked spanish language and literature instructors from student rankings are at Illinois State University. If we incorporate data other than just rankings it becomes clear that the school possessing comprehensively the best professors for spanish language and literature is Harvard University. One will find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the finest examples of professors nationwide.

Finally, the hardest university to get into for spanish language and literature is Harvard University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we have an extensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you believe that approaching academics with a perspective primarily formed from superlatives might cause problems. We hope you explore our more focused pages on different colleges and peruse some of our helpful background articles on essential details to consider as you progress with your school search.
