Beginning and Intermediate Spanish language courses are offered for prospective majors and non-majors. SPAN 1201 and SPAN 1202 make up the first-year Spanish language sequence (first and second semester). A number of course options are then offered at the intermediate level (that is, the third and fourth semesters). The following courses satisfy the first semester of the Intermediate level: SPAN 2105 Communication Skills Development I; SPAN 2200 Spanish for Reading Knowledge; SPAN 2201 Intermediate Spanish I; SPAN 2210 Spanish for Commerce, SPAN 2211 Spanish for Criminal Justice Professionals, and SPAN 2212 Spanish for Health Care Professionals. All of these courses satisfy a first semester intermediate language course required by many majors in the College of Arts and Sciences as well as some other Colleges. Different majors may require a specific course from those listed above. Students should check carefully with an advisor in their own major to determine which third semester course is preferred by their major.
Advanced Spanish courses at the third and fourth years cover a wide variety of subjects of study including advanced language (conversation, composition, grammar review), the literatures and cultures of Spain and Latin America, linguistics, film studies, advanced business Spanish, translating and translation studies, as well as writing-intensive courses in English which study various aspects of Hispanic literature in translation.
