Don’t get derailed by your foreign language requirement!

Stay on track—complete your Spanish requirement in one year!

Now that the new courses in Spanish have been redesigned into a sequence of three semesters (SPN601D, SPN610D & SPN611D), you can easily complete your language requirement in one year by choosing one of the following options:

•    Option 1: Take SPN 601D and SPN 610D during the regular academic year (Fall and Spring) and SPN 611D during summer session I or II

•    Option 2:  Take SPN 601D in the Fall or Spring and take both SPN 610D and SPN611D during summer sessions I and II, respectively

•    Option 3:  Complete SPN 601D and 610D in any semester, and take SPN 611D (session I or II) in one of our faculty-led summer study abroad programs in Santander, Spain, or Córdoba, Argentina

Why are summer courses advantageous?
•    You can finish the language requirement in one academic year.
•    You can become eligible for study abroad sooner.
•    You can finish each summer course in five weeks.
•    You can study Spanish with fewer distractions .
•    You can free up time in the long semesters (Fall and Spring) to take other courses.

In Summer 2011 the Department of Spanish and Portuguese will offer
3 sections of SPN 601D, 3 sections of SPN 610D, and 3 sections of SPN 611D in each

Register early before sections are closed.

Registration for summer and fall classes will be in April.
