Beyond the basics
The Spanish major requires at least nine courses in Spanish, chosen in consultation with the Spanish faculty from SPAN 20200 (Intermediate Spanish II) and beyond. Courses should include advanced grammar, civilization (both Peninsular and Spanish American) and literature courses.
In addition, Spanish majors must complete an approved study-abroad program with a family home-stay component and the senior capstone project, SPAN 49000.
Foreign language majors must study abroad for at least one term. They may participate in any of the programs described below. Other options to satisfy this requirement must be approved by the department.
Many study abroad opportunities are offered during the 3-Week. Students may also choose to spend more time abroad at Centers of the Institute of European Studies in Nantes, Paris, Freiberg or Madrid. Students who complete their major work while abroad for a year must take at least one upper-level course (30000 level) in the department during their senior year.
