Students must complete 30 hours of community service
(volunteering) with Spanish-speaking populations. The sites, type
of volunteering work, and hours must be pre-approved by Spanish
faculty advisor. These hours must be completed before students
enroll in the last course to complete their minor.
Spanish-native speakers must first consult with Spanish faculty
advisor for appropriate courses.
Incoming freshman and all students who wish to minor in Spanish
need to set up an appointment with Spanish faculty advisor to
conduct a diagnostic test, ideally before their sophomore year.
Study Abroad: It is recommended that students participate in
study abroad experiences in a Spanish-speaking country. However,
this is not a requirement for graduation. Students who wish to
study abroad for the summer may do so in an academic program
approved by department and Spanish faculty advisor. Depending on
the length and contents covered in the program, credit hours may
count toward minor.
