For incoming students with no prior experience or coursework in Spanish, the Bachelor of Arts in Spanish consists of 58 units: 22 units of lower-division (e.g. 100- and 200-level) Spanish coursework, plus 36 units of upper-division (e.g. 300- and 400-level) coursework, including the upper-division writing requirement (MLNG 301). Depending on prior experience, coursework and/or demonstrated proficiency in the language, some or all lower-division coursework may be waived (please refer to the Spanish Advisement page). Lower-division coursework for native/heritage speakers of Spanish includes SPAN 202 and SPAN 214 only. Students should consult with a Spanish adviser to be placed in the appropriate course(s).
Any 400-level course not already taken, chosen in consultation with an adviser; SPAN 475T and SPAN 485T may be repeated with a different topic. Students planning to pursue the Spanish K-12 teaching credential should choose the linguistics course not already taken (SPAN 466 or SPAN 468) as their elective.
