The Spanish and Hispanic Studies Minor offers students the opportunity to explore the broad interdisciplinary field of the language and cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. The Minor, designed to complement the students’ areas of specialization, will allow them to develop the linguistic and cultural proficiency necessary to work professionally in the United States and in all Spanish-speaking countries while making significant contributions to their communities. In addition to obtaining a greater mastery of all language skills (reading, writing, comprehension, speaking), students will acquire and apply terminology specific to their field. Finally, the Minor, in introducing students to diverse Hispanic literatures and cultures, will not only develop their analytical skills, but also teach them to recognize, negotiate, and appreciate cultural difference.

Note: Students must take at least five courses taught in Spanish toward their minor.


Students placed at the 300 level or above may not take this course for credit in the minor; for students placed in SPN 225, this course does count toward the 18 credits of the minor.


If students take SPN 311, SPN 312 or SPN 313 as their SPN language course to start the minor, three of the credits would count in that category instead. Advanced Students may replace 300- with 400-level courses with departmental permission.


May be repeated to a limit of three credits.
