The Spanish major consists of nine courses above the 103-104 level. These nine courses include 301, any course 200 level or above, 401, and 402. The major seeks to provide training in literary analysis and linguistic expression, as well as an appreciation of Hispanic civilization, through the study of the major writers of the Spanish-speaking world.
Students majoring in Spanish and who are also registered in Latin American Area Studies may replace one of their Spanish electives with an Area Studies course offered in another department. Inasmuch as all courses in Spanish assume the active participation of each student in discussions conducted in the foreign language, regular attendance at class meetings is expected.
