To complete a Minor in Spanish, students must accumulate no fewer than 30 credits and no more than 42 credits in Spanish out of the 120 credits required for the B.A. degree. At least 18 of these credits must be numbered 300 or above.

First and Second Years

Students who do not need to complete the Beginner courses SPAN 101 and SPAN 102 (e.g. students who have achieved 70% or higher in Spanish 12) will need to replace the 6 credits through any of the following options:

  • 6 credits from 300/400 level SPAN courses in addition to the 12 required credits;
  • Up to 6 credits from HIST 151, HIST 240, HIST 351, HIST 352, HIST 354, or HIST 452.
