Students with extensive foreign residency experience in Spanish-speaking areas are advised not to enroll in SPAN 1010 , SPAN 1020 , SPAN 2010 , SPAN 2020 . Such students may earn P/F credits for those courses through examination as indicated above.
No course in which a grade lower than a “C-” is received may be counted toward the credit hour requirement for any major or minor emphasis in the department. Those working toward the major may also select an appropriate minor.
Any internship (SPAN 4893 ), study abroad (SPAN 4920 ), and student teaching (SPAN 4980 ) credit count as an elective. Other than transfer credit, internship credit and study abroad credits should not exceed 3 credits per denomination. SPAN 4980 should not exceed 2 credits. Total credit toward a Spanish Major with a SPAN 4893 , SPAN 4920 , and SPAN 4980 denomination must not exceed a maximum of 6 credits.
Independent study courses will be marked differently in the transcript and are reserved for situations of extreme necessity. Trying to get a major in a period of a year and a half or less does not fit such description, and it should be avoided through careful planning. Under no circumstances will more than two independent studies be allowed towards a major.
