Spanish or French with YOUR major


Ashley Murray

Spanish Major

Hola, Me llamo Ashley Murray and I am a junior here at Marywood University. I am a Spanish major with the opportunity to minor in Psychology and Sociology. I also have the opportunity to play basketball at the collegiate level here at Marywood! I fell in love with the Spanish culture my freshman year of high school. Since then I always knew I wanted to do something that had to do with the language. I am hoping to be some type of teacher who can work with younger kids who need help learning English, either in a school or a counseling center. I am still a ways away from knowing and understanding the full language, but if there is any institution that can help me learn it all it’s Marywood University! I am hoping to graduate with a major in Spanish in 2015 and then return for Graduate School the following fall. Having a strong background in Spanish can help in any job field I choose due to the growing Spanish speaking population in our community. I am excited to see what my future has to offer me, and I know having a Spanish education from Marywood will only make my future brighter!
