Spanish language and literature is the 51st most popular degree in America, with 9,277 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #52 Management Information Systems, and narrowly lost to #50 Drama.

The degree is offered at a total of 853 colleges across the nation, and is the 20th most widely offered degree. Given that spanish language and literature is offered at 80% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America, you can be sure this is a critical degree and the skillsets acquired are likely to last for a long time.

It is also worth noting that 47% of colleges offering spanish language and literature are public making it a pretty accessible field.

The great lakes produces the most spanish language and literature graduates, largely led by Indiana University-Bloomington, while it’s the Big Ten Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from University of California-Davis and University of California-Santa Barbara.

All that being said, no individual school produces more spanish language and literature graduates than Arizona Western College, which graduated 155 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study spanish language and literature). More students studied spanish language and literature as a percentage of total students at Wofford College than any other college.
