PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
The BA degree in SPANISH is a relatively structured program, beginning with language classes at the beginning and intermediate
levels and culminating in more advanced classes in literature and culture as well as continued study of the language itself. Both French
and Spanish offer two variations or tracks for completing the major. Spanish offers an Honors Program and a Senior Seminar. All four
majors encourage students to master the language through study abroad opportunities. Students with little or no background in the
language should declare the major as Freshmen in order to graduate on time; students who do not need to take beginning or
intermediate language classes may declare as late as their junior year and still complete the degree on schedule. Students interested in
pursuing teacher licensure, study abroad or Spanish Honors, should contact the Department as early as possible.
