Spanish Minor

Spanish is the official language of twenty-one countries in the world, and it is the second most spoken language in the United States. We provide classes in Spanish that help students develop linguistic abilities with an emphasis on real-world proficiency, as well as introduce students to the major historical and cultural phenomena that characterize the Spanish-speaking world.

Courses used to fulfill the minor requirements must be taken for a letter grade and passed with a grade of C- or better. Coursework transferred in from Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate exams are acceptable with a mark of P*. Further details are available on the department website.
