Students placed at the 300 level or above may not take this course for credit in the major; for students placed in SPN 225, this course does count toward the 30 credits of the major.


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

Students majoring or co-majoring in Secondary School Teaching Endorsement 7-12 may substitute three credit hours of student teaching for one 500-level course.
