Notes

An academic minor is an attribute of a baccalaureate degree, not an entity by itself, and can only be awarded at the same time a student graduates with a bachelor’s degree.  Students must declare a minor prior to submitting a graduation application.  A minor may not be added to a previously awarded degree.  Students must complete the minor requirements prior to or concurrent with completion of their bachelor’s degree requirements.  Minors are not available with associate’s degrees.

Students may not declare a minor that is in the same discipline as their major.  Example:  English majors cannot declare any English minor.  

Integrated Studies majors may not have an academic minor in the same discipline as either of their two declared emphases.  Example:  An Integrated Studies major with emphases in English and Spanish cannot receive a minor in either English or Spanish.

Introductory Information to Spanish Degree           

Students can begin taking the required courses for the Spanish major in one of three ways:

1.  By beginning with any of the lower division courses (SPAN 1010, 1020, 2010, or 2020), depending on a student’s background. Students who begin with 1020, 2010, or 2020 may receive vertical credits for the lower classes, if needed, according to policy.

2.  By beginning with SPAN 3010 for heritage Spanish speakers.  If needed, students can receive vertical credits for the classes skipped, according to policy

3.  By beginning with SPAN 3060 for native speakers or students who have lived in a Spanish speaking environment for 1.5 years or more.  If needed, students can receive vertical credits for the classes skipped, according to policy.

The Bachelor of Arts foreign language requirement may be filled with any of these three options as soon as the student receives credit for either SPAN 2020 or SPAN 3060.

Placement in foreign language classes is at the discretion of the Department Chair.

If a student's native language is Spanish, SPAN 3010 cannot be counted towards requirements.

You are a "heritage speaker" if the primary language spoken at home was Spanish and you graduated from a high school where the language of instruction was English.
