SPANISH 1020 Intensive Spanish Language (16 credits)

SPANISH 2030 Intensive Spanish Language (16 credits)

Because this 16-credit package of study covers four levels of Spanish in sequence, students on this track may not enroll in liberal arts or international business courses. This track is for the intensive study of the Spanish language only.

The Intensive Spanish Language program is designed for students on the beginning and intermediate levels who want to focus solely on the acquisition of Spanish. Students already at the advanced level can gain the same exposure to the Spanish language by taking all of their courses (language, literature, and liberal arts) in Spanish.

For instance, a student who has completed only the first two semesters of college-level Spanish (1010/1020 Beginning Spanish I/II) will start at 2030 Intermediate Spanish I and complete four levels in a single semester (2030, 2040, 3050, 3060). By the same token, a student with little or no background in Spanish can complete 1020, 2030, 2040 and 3050 in a single semester.

Students in the Intensive Spanish Language have three full hours of class each day (3.6 contact hours) and appropriate homework assignments and intercambio activities. Because so much material is covered each day, attendance is mandatory. Any student missing three days of class (or the equivalent) will be automatically switched to non-credit status.

The semester calendar parallels the calendar in the Liberal Arts/International Business Track so that students in the Intensive Spanish Language program can participate in the optional field trips, internships, volunteering opportunities, and sports programs if they wish.
