how do I say my "major" is in accounting and "minor" is in spanish?
Hi. I'm a bit late but I think this will help someone else in the future. If you want to say "my major is in accounting and my minor is in spanish" the correct translation of it is: "Mi especialidad es contabilidad con mención en español." I'm a native spanish speaker, so that's the right way to introduce your main and secondary specialties. For example, I'm a Marketing Engineering major and I'm minoring in International Business and Economics. Hope this helps!
Major - Especialización académica principal
Minor - Especialización académica secundaria
Mi concentración es la contabilidad y tengo un enfoque en el Español.
There really isn't a way to directly say major and minor in Spanish (I have tried many times). This is the best way to say it that I am aware of. It translates to "My concentration is in accounting and I have a focus in Spanish." Eso es, mas o menos.
I hope this helps!
The dictionary itself says la especialidad. I had the same question and I asked my professor (who is from Spain, edits professionally, and is generally a hard **** lol) how to say minor. He said subespecialidad. Makes sense...
I know major is especialidad but I can't remember minor
