The language courses (101-202) fulfill the college’s specific standard requirement of proficiency in a foreign language at the intermediate level and promote the appreciation of the cultural diversity that characterizes the Spanish-speaking world and Latina/o communities in the United States.
To be better prepared for language courses, students should have taken a few years of Spanish, including a course during their senior year in high school. Incoming students with more than one year of Spanish must take a placement test before enrolling in courses. No student with more than one year of high school Spanish may register for SPA 101.
Please consult the main catalog page for a supplement with course changes approved by the faculty after the publication of the 2014-15 Catalog.
