Spanish Minor

The minor consists of a minimum of 6 full courses (or the equivalent).


  • Students must earn minimum grades of C- or P for all courses that apply toward the minor.
  • Students minoring in Spanish may change to a minor in Hispanic studies at any time, but they may not minor in both. The minor in Hispanic studies implies advanced proficiency in Spanish.
