This minor allows students to acquire an active command of written and spoken Spanish, with a knowledge of historical and contemporary issues in the Spanish-speaking world. It is designed to complement programs such as Education, English, Film Studies, History, Management, and Music. Spanish minors may elect to study in Spain or Latin America during their junior year through our exchange programs or through other approved programs. Students planning to study abroad must consult with the National and International Exchange Center and Spanish faculty before departure to arrange for program approval and transfer of credit.

New students who have had no prior Spanish should register for IHSP 101. Students with one or two years of successful high school study or one college semester should register for IHSP 102. Students with three or more high school years or two college semesters should register for IHSP 103. Students must consult Spanish faculty to find the most appropriate level.
