SP 100 Elementary Spanish I: 3 semester hours
Elementary Spanish provides students with an introductory knowledge of Spanish through a communicative approach. Assessment focuses on basic principles of grammar, vocabulary, listening comprehension, and oral expression. Learning exercises acquaint students with cultural context. Prerequisite: None. (Note: Students with 3-4 years of high school Spanish should enroll in SP 200 and take a placement test.).
The Spanish minor introduces students to the language, literature, and cultures of Spanish-speaking populations. Expertise in Spanish will prepare students for study abroad, service opportunities, graduate school, future occupations, and life in an increasingly global society. The minor requires a minimum of 15 credits. (Courses numbered SP 200 Intermediate Spanish I and above count toward the minor).
