Spanish Pathway

 Designed for students beyond SPAN 105 Intermediate Spanish I, the Spanish Pathway enables students to
 pursue proficiency in Spanish through Core courses and and to expand their understanding of the rich
 range of cultures in which Spanish functions as a primary or secondary mode of expression.

Please note: in addition to the courses listed below, Honors and special-topics courses may be used in Pathways if they have been approved for this purpose.See here for a list of Fall 2015 course offerings applicable to Pathways.

Applicable language courses include SPAN 106 Intermediate Spanish II and beyond. The Pathway must contain four courses, including at least one course in three of the following areas: Spanish language; literature; culture; film; and history. Courses taken abroad in these areas may count toward the Pathway. For additional information, see the Department of Modern Languages & Cultures' Spanish Pathway page.
