Minor for Spanish majors: Either (1) twelve semester hours, including at least six hours of upper-division coursework, in any one other field of study in the University; or (2) nine semester hours of coursework beyond 507 or the equivalent in a second foreign language, including at least three hours of upper-division coursework. Six of the required hours must be taken in residence. Students in the Hispanic linguistics concentration must minor in linguistics; their coursework in the minor must include Linguistics 306.

Rationale: To allow students with a concentration in Spanish and Portuguese to take grammar courses in both Spanish and Portuguese; to balance the concentration more evenly between the two disciplines.

The text is also corrected to reflect the existing policy that students must minor in a field other than Spanish.
