Minor in Spanish

This selection of courses will enhance the individual student's major, while honing their Spanish language skills.

Note: Lower-division courses (Spanish 100, 101, 102, 201) serve as a prerequisite but do not count toward the units necessary for the Minor. (To continue with the next level of any language course, or even to enter Upper Division after Fourth Semester, students must receive a final grade of 70% or higher).
