Requirements for the Spanish Major
Concurrent enrollment is permitted. All three prerequisites must be completed before studying more advanced levels of literature or civilization and culture; however, the Spanish major can be declared at any time.
A reminder that a major block is placed on Spanish 325 and 468 for registering purposes in the fall and spring. If you plan to major in Spanish and want to take either of these classes in the fall or spring, you must declare your major at least four weeks prior to your assigned class registration time. No exceptions to this rule. If you do not declare your Spanish major at least four weeks prior to your registration time, you will likely need to wait until a later semester to take either of these classes.

Before you graduate, you may be required to take an oral proficiency test in Spanish. The Department will contact you if and when you are required to take this test. The results of this test will be treated anonymously and will in no way affect your academic record or progress.
