Specific course and area requirements and electives in language, literature, and culture characterize both programs. The Spanish Major begins at the 300 level.

Spanish as a Second Major

Required: minimum of 30 semester hours.
Students must complete the requirements as described for the Spanish Major (30 s.h.)

Curriculum

The major begins at the 300 level. A minimum number of 30 hours at the 300 level and above is required to complete the major. Students seeking licensure should consult their advisor for details. Courses taught in English may not be used for credit toward the major, second major, minor or second academic concentration.

To maintain the high quality of language instruction at UNCG, students declaring a major in either French or Spanish must sit for an oral competence evaluation during the semester in which they will first take a 300-level course in their major. This evaluation is part of our ongoing program assessment and in no way affects the academic record of students. The undergraduate advisor and/or instructor will notify majors with pertinent information at the time of the evaluation.
