The faculty has approval to offer the following courses in the academic years 2004-2005 and 2005-2006; however, not all courses are taught each semester or summer session. Students should consult the Course Schedule to determine which courses and topics will be offered during a particular semester or summer session. The Course Schedule may also reflect changes made to the course inventory after the publication of this catalog.

A full explanation of course numbers is given in General Information. In brief, the first digit of a course number indicates the semester hour value of the course. The second and third digits indicate the rank of the course: if they are 01 through 19, the course is of lower-division rank; if 20 through 79, of upper-division rank; if 80 through 99, of graduate rank.

Department of Spanish and Portuguese

Credit and Placement by Examination

The placement test in Spanish is the University of Wisconsin College-Level Placement Test in Spanish. A student with no college credit in Spanish is encouraged to take this test before enrolling in any Spanish course if he or she took any Spanish in high school.

Students who took Spanish in high school should enroll in Spanish 508K, Alternate First-Year Spanish. If a student wishes to enroll in a more advanced course, he or she must take the placement test first.

Students who have taken Spanish courses at the University of Texas at Austin are not eligible to take the placement test unless they obtain approval in advance from the lower-division coordinator for Spanish.

Spanish credit already earned is not affected by the results of the placement test.

All students with some knowledge of Portuguese should take a placement test given by the lower-division coordinator for Portuguese.
