Minor in Spanish
Students interested in pursuing a Minor in Spanish should consult with a departmental academic advisor during the first year of their B.A. program. Students interested in studying abroad should inform the departmental advisor as soon as possible.
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.
