The Department of Spanish and Portuguese is dedicated to the study of languages, literatures, and cultures of Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula. Our department offers a wide variety of undergraduate classes, from basic language instruction in Spanish and Portuguese to upper-level courses in literature, culture, and film. Undergraduates may pursue majors and minors in Spanish and Portuguese, or a Joint Major in Spanish and Portuguese.
Students pursuing the joint major in Spanish and Portuguese must complete 34 credits (eleven courses) to be distributed as follows:
|Select any two 3000-level courses in Spanish||6|
