IMPORTANT:

  • This roadmap only presents the fastest route to the Spanish major for students starting at different levels of placement (from “beginner” to “advanced”). You may choose to spread out the required 10 courses differently depending on other considerations (e.g. requirements of a second major, specific course rotations, timing of off-campus study, etc.)
  • The numbers SPAN 300/400/500 refer to any course at those levels (e.g. SPAN 316, SPAN 425, SPAN 514) or their off-campus equivalents (see Catalog). Off campus equivalencies are predetermined by the Spanish department and are non negotiable. Always consult with the chair of Spanish before selecting off-campus courses.
  • The SPAN 400/500 elective can be replaced for 6 units of an approved internship or up to 6 units of an approved non-Spanish course.
  • Off-campus study is not required for the major in Spanish, although almost all majors choose to spend at least one semester abroad. The preferred time is fall of junior year.
  • Off-campus programs administer their own placement tests upon arrival. These may determine that a student is not ready to take the most advanced classes (e.g. SPAN 500-level) while abroad. In these cases, a student may need to take more than 10 courses, on- and off-campus, in order to complete the major successfully.
