Prerequisite: SPAN 9 or SPAN 15 (or equivalent)
All minor plans must be approved in person by a Major/Minor Advisor of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese after the student has submitted their online course of study.
The minor in Hispanic Studies consists of at least five courses taught in Spanish and English (one). Approval for this option will be granted and only for a course in English offered by the Department and taken after a student has completed SPAN 20. The five Spanish courses must be distributed as follows:
The Minor in Hispanic Studies consists of at least 5 (five) additional courses, which must be distributed as follows:
1) SPAN 20 - required for the Minor
SPAN 20 is required for majors and minors and counts towards the major and minor. It can be taken concurrently with other 30-level courses. It is a prerequisite for upper-level courses (SPAN 40 and higher).
Students must take at least one of these courses. No more than two may count toward the minor, except for students doing a Foreign Study Program who can count a maximum of three.
In consultation with the Major/Minor Advisor, students choose the remaining courses from the upper-level offerings. The Department projects its course offerings up to two years in advance so that students can thoughtfully plan an individualized course of study in consultation with the Major Advisor.
One Independent Study (SPAN 83) may also count as an upper-level course for the Minor. Students interested in pursuing an Independent Study must identify their topic and faculty advisor and present a proposal to their faculty advisor and to the Department for approval no later than the seventh week of the term preceding the term they wish to undertake the Independent Study.
