- SP 0220 is a prerequisite for all subsequent Spanish classes. After taking SP 0220, students may take all remaining courses (required and elective) at any time and in any order, provided individual course prerequisites are met.
- If students have received their High School education in a Spanish-speaking country, and if those classes were given in Spanish, then the student needs to meet with a Spanish Professor to have his or her level determined. If it is determined that the student should not take SP 0220, he or she would still need to complete the required 30 credits for the major.
- Any questions regarding the major should be directed to the director of the Spanish section.
Major requirements may include approved courses from study abroad partners. Students are encouraged to study abroad in a Spanish speaking country. In order to have courses taken abroad count toward the Spanish major or minor, two conditions must be met:
- The courses are taught entirely in Spanish.
- The content is related to some aspect of Latin American or Spanish culture, history, linguistics, politics, or literature.
