Spanish Major

To major in Spanish, 28 upper division semester hours of Spanish must be completed. Required courses include Spanish 300 or 301; three additional hours of language from Spanish 300-306; Spanish 328 and 370; three hours from Spanish 350-352; six hours of literature from Spanish 400-490, 497; and six additional elective hours from Spanish 325-498 (except 353).

Additionally, majors complete a senior thesis under the guidance of a faculty advisor. A senior research project is required for one credit hour in order to complete the German major.

Upon successful completion of the program, students receive a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in German. Students are encouraged to pursue a second major or a minor.

The block schedule incorporates the New Core Curriculum requirements and is just one example of how to structure courses for a Spanish major. You should see your Spanish advisor each semester to work out the schedule that best suits your needs and interests.
