Minor Information - Spanish


The minor program in Spanish is primarily designed for students in other majors who need a background in Spanish to prepare for careers in business, law, governement, medicine among others,or for personal enrichment.

A minor in Spanish consists of a minimum of 18 credits of courses given in Spanish (940) completed with a grade of C or better in each course. The first course to count towards the minor is SPA 132 (SPA 139 for heritage speakers). Of the 18 credits, 9 credits must be at the 300 level or above. Please refer to the description of our courses for a list of pre-requisites. No more than 3 credits may be taken in courses not taught in the Spanish language.  Note: You will not receive credit towards the minor for any course taken below your placement.

SAS students can declare a Spanish minor online. For more information on declaring a minor or to download the declaration form, please click HERE.  Students from other units (SEBS, RBS-NB, etc.) should meet with their academic advisors regarding declaration of a Spanish minor.
