Minors in Spanish may be elected by students majoring in other fields. All minors complete a total of 18 credits, including SPA 301 and SPA 302, at least two introduction to literature or survey of literature courses and two additional upper-level courses. Additional Spanish elective coursework may be taken for degree completion requirements according to student need or interest.
The Spanish minor focuses on mastery of the language, understanding of Spanish-speaking cultures, familiarization with the most important figures of Spanish and Spanish-American literature and culture, and critical awareness of the intellectual problems and possibilities involved in the study of other cultures. If you are majoring in another field, a minor in Spanish offers you an opportunity to complement the knowledge gained in your principal field, while adding a cultural and linguistic dimension to your academic experience.
