PROGRAM STRUCTURE AND REQUIREMENTS

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.

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

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 program have three full hours of class each day (3.6 contact hours) and appropriate homework assignments and intercambio activities. Given that a lot of material is covered each day, attendance is mandatory. Any student missing three days of class (or the equivalent) will automatically be switched to non-credit status.

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS

  • A student must have at least sophomore standing at the time of participation.
  • A student must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 GPA (semester applicants)* or 2.25 GPA (winterim or summer applicants)**
  • A student must be in good academic standing at the time of participation.
  • 2-3 years of high-school Spanish or 1 semester college – level Spanish 

*If your GPA is below 2.5, you are not automatically disqualified from studying abroad. Please contact Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam. Necesita tener JavaScript habilitado para poder verlo. for more information.

**Students with a grade point average between a 2.0 and 2.25 may be considered on a case-by-case basis for winterim and summer terms at the discretion of  SAIIE.
