Minor in Spanish

The minor in Spanish offers you the opportunity to develop your Spanish language skills and your cultural awareness so that you can use what you learn in your community and in your workplace. It consists of 18 hours above the 1000 level, completed in 3 blocks. Fifteen hours must be in upper-level courses, with at least three hours at the 4000 level as specified below.

If you have prior experience with Spanish, you will need to complete the WebCAPE exam via the Office of Testing Services before registering to determine your language proficiency and course placement.

Study abroad and community engagement are encouraged as part of the minor requirements.
