If you’re interested in studying foreign languages or other cultures but have declared a major with another department or are interested in majoring in another area, we encourage you to consider one of our undergraduate minors.
A minor in any foreign language will give your education a highly desirable international dimension, and a minor in Spanish, in particular, will give you an edge in the job market.
A minor in Spanish requires only 21 hours of credit, six of which can be earned at the intermediate level, either by taking SPAN 231 and 232 (3 credits each), or by taking SPAN 240, a one-semester accelerated section worth six credit hours.
The minor is an excellent option for those students whose degree programs require two years of language study since upon completion of the second year they will need only 15 more hours (5 additional courses). These are comprised of SPAN 301 and 302 (“Topics of the Hispanic World I & II” ) and nine hours of electives at the 300 and 400 levels.
