ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2017 and after)

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and multicultural requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

The Spanish major requires thirty (30) semester hours, distributed in the following manner, are required: fifteen semester hours of 3000-level courses including SPN 3300, SPN 3400; SPT 3503; one SPW 3000-level literature course; a departmental linguistics course (usually LIN 3041). Required at the 4000 level are fifteen semester hours in SPN or SPW courses, including at least one senior seminar (SPN 4540, SPN 4930, SPW 4930, or SPN 4700). SPT 3100 and SPT 3130 will not count for major credit. Heritage speakers must take SPN 3350 plus one additional 3000- or 4000-level SPW or SPN course (excluding SPN 3400) instead of the required SPN 3300 or SPN 3400. Majors must complete 12-18 hours for a minor. All courses taken to fulfill the 30 hours of major course work must be taken for a letter grade. A grade of C minus or better must be earned in each course applied toward any major or minor degree earned in the department.

Placement tests are available only for French, German and Spanish. If you are placed above a milestone, it is important that you continue with the next milestone in its place. Students with any language proficiency must consult an advisor in the Department of Modern Languages for proper course placement. Total hours above 120 vary based on language proficiency level of student.
