Notes:

  • Credit for SPA 101 and SPA 102 may not be used for the major but will be counted for graduation.
  • SPA 201 and SPA 202 also satisfy modern language requirements for the B.A.
  • All majors and minors must earn a C or higher in SPA 301, which serves as a gateway course to upper-level culture and literature courses.
  • Majors must earn passing scores on the third-year proficiency exams to enroll in GLT 400.
  • The department strongly recommends that majors study abroad for at least one summer.
