Minors in Spanish and Portuguese

The minors in Spanish and Portuguese are for students who want to develop advanced linguistic competence in Spanish or Portuguese, or who wish to combine acquisition of linguistic competence with the study of the literature, thought, culture, or language systems of the Spanish- or Portuguese-speaking worlds. The minors in Spanish and Portuguese require 30 units of course work taken for a letter grade. Up to 5 units of course work outside the department may count towards the minor, with the approval of the minors coordinator, and up to 10 units of relevant course work taken abroad, may count toward these minors. Courses other than those listed as eligible may only count toward the minor with the approval of the minors coordinator or the Director of Undergraduate Studies. To declare either of these minors or for more information, see the minors coordinator or the undergraduate student services office in the Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages.
