Students who have previously taken Spanish must complete the Modern Foreign Language placement test to determine entry level. Students must complete Spanish coursework through, at minimum, SPA-202 (or equivalent by placement test) to be eligible for this minor.
All students must complete 15 units of coursework, regardless of placement test results. Students who complete SPA-202 in fewer than 15 credits have the option to take up to 3 credits in Humanities & Fine Arts courses (English, Philosophy & Religious Studies, Theatre & Speech Arts, Music, or Art). ENG-100 and FYS-101 may not be used to fulfill minor requirements.
Students may elect to minor in Spanish (Humanities & Fine Arts PEAK) or in Spanish Foundations (Professional Studies & Enhancements PEAK), but not both. Spanish majors may not minor in either Spanish or Spanish Foundations.
Students wishing to teach Spanish at the secondary level should consult with the education department for specific certification requirements.
