Major Requirements (30 sch)
Two semesters of intermediate Spanish language are prerequisite for the major and minor in Spanish: SPAN 2311 and SPAN 2312 (6sch), or SPAN 2313 and SPAN 2315 (6 sch), or Spanish CLEP with a minimum score of 66, or Native speakers of Spanish with coordinator’s approval.
A major in Spanish consists of a minimum of 30 credits at the 3000 level and above as follows:
Notes: Students with native proficiency in Spanish or a background in high school Spanish language study may take the CLEP in Spanish and, if scores justify it, receive three or six hours of sophomore-level Spanish language credit. SPAN 3311 will fulfill the requirements either for the Minor in Bilingual/English as a Second Language or as an elective (3 hrs) for the Major in Spanish, not for both.
SPAN 3301 Advanced Grammar and Syntax is a gateway course to upper-level study in Spanish. SPAN 3301 and SPAN 3302 are required courses for the Major and Minor in Spanish. SPAN 3301 or SPAN 3302 are prerequisites for 4000-level Spanish courses, whichever is taken first. Degree plans vary depending upon a student’s goals and preparation prior to enrolling at UT Permian Basin. Students should consult with their faculty advisor for specific degree planning.
