This list describes in general terms the proposed sequence of courses for the Xavier University Spanish major. Every student’s path may be different, and all majors will consult with their Spanish advisor each semester to ensure that they are taking the right course at the right time for their individual needs and goals. The sequence may be adjusted when a student studies abroad.
