Hispanic Studies offers two options for Minors:
For the Minor Concentration in Hispanic Languages students must complete 18 credits in language and civilization courses taught in the Department of Hispanic Studies. Students with an advanced standing in the Spanish language can take literature courses as part of this option. The Minor in Hispanic Languages will not be granted if the student has not taken any language course as part of it. In that case, students must follow the Minor in Hispanic Literature and Culture option.
For the Minor Concentration in Hispanic Literature and Culture students must take 18 credits in courses taught in the Department of Hispanic Studies. No language courses are permitted as part of this option. Students must take Hispanic Civilization 1 (HISP-225) and Hispanic Civilization 2 (HISP-226). They must also complete 2 surveys of literature (to choose from HISP-241, HISP-242, HISP-243, or HISP-244). The remaining credits must be taken in literature courses taught in Spanish at the 300 level or above.
