The B.A. in Spanish language, literature, and culture offers cross-disciplinary exposure to the various literary genres and linguistic analyses of Spanish, South American, Central American, Caribbean, and Latino cultures. The language and history of the regions encourage students to formulate diverse theoretical models and cultural perspectives, which may be applied to a variety of career options. Courses range from the beginning level through a series of 300- and 400-level courses that allow students to pursue a major or minor in Spanish. All students with more than one year of high school Spanish are required to take a placement examination, which is given every fall. Students who do not take the exam in the fall should consult the Spanish language coordinator about their placement. The examination is a requirement for all students regardless of class standing. First-year students need permission to enroll in courses numbered 300 or above. SPA 202 or its equivalent is a prerequisite for courses numbered 300 and above. Students, including transfers, with credits earned in Spanish, should consult the major advisor of Spanish as early as possible. Early consultation is also important for students with little or no preparation in Spanish so they may be sure to satisfy prerequisites and requirements within four years.
