Undergraduate Program Director: Manel Lacorte, Ph.D.

The undergraduate minor in Spanish consists of three options, all of which require 18 credits of coursework beyond the intermediate prerequisite level and one of which the student must choose as a course of study. These three minors are: (1) Spanish Minor 1: Literature, Linguistics, and Culture; (2) Spanish Minor 2: Language, Culture, and Professional Contexts; and (3) Spanish Minor 3: Heritage Language and Latina/o Culture.
To declare a minor in Spanish, students should meet with the undergraduate advisor to begin the process.
