Students should check their degree evaluations and consult with their assigned academic advisor to discuss their specific course plan.


The undergraduate degree in Spanish has two tracks for students to select: Culture, Literature, and Cinema Track or Language-Linguistics Track.

There are multiple entry points into the major depending on previous Spanish language experience. Students should consult a Modern and Classical Languages advisor about the appropriate placement and credit-by-exam options.

Spanish offers two major tracks:

Spanish B.A. : Culture, Literature, and Cinema Track

Spanish B.A. : Language-Linguistics Track
