The major in Spanish is based on the prior completion of 14 hours of proficiency-level preparation numbered SP 1100-SP 1150 and SP 2100-SP 2150, or the equivalent. Equivalent proficiency preparation can be completed in high school, junior college or other colleges or universities, or waived through ACCP and AP credits, satisfactory CLEP scores, or a department test.
The major concentration in Spanish consists of a minimum of 21 upper-division semester hours of work. In addition, 12 hours of related courses are required. A grade of C or better is required in each upper-division course of the major. (A grade of C- will not satisfy the requirement.)
Courses designated as LTI and LTII satisfy the literary mode of inquiry, and courses designated as ARI satisfy the artistic mode of inquiry of the liberal core curriculum.
Take 12 hours of upper-division non-Spanish coursework and earn a minimum grade of C. Courses should be chosen in consultation with advisor. It is recommended that students take the additional 12 hours in another foreign language.
