  • Students wishing to major or minor in Spanish should plan their program in consultation with the department.

  • Spanish is the only language used in class discussion, readings, culture, and assignments in all courses, except in LITR courses. 

  • Students must have taken SPAN 022 or 023 before they can take an advanced literature or film course in Spanish unless they receive special permission from the instructor. 

  • Courses numbered 040 to 089 belong to the same level of complexity, requiring the same level of preparation. The numbering does not imply a sequence.

  • Spanish courses taught in English (LITR.S courses) do not count towards the Spanish minor. One Spanish course taken in English may count towards the Spanish major.
