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.
