Spanish and Latin American Studies
A major in Spanish and Latin American Studies will develop your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in Spanish. In addition to language studies, the beginners' units contain an introduction to Spanish and Latin American culture, politics and history. Senior language units can be taken together with separate 6 credit point courses which deal with the culture and history of Spain and Latin America in greater depth.
Students who wish to major in Spanish must take at least 36 senior credit points from a combination of language units and other units offered by the Department of Spanish and Latin American Studies or through cross-listing. A minimum of 24 credit points must be taken from language units and a minimum of 12 credit points must be taken from other units of study.
