PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS: 
 
Spanish majors are required to study abroad and minors are strongly encouraged to do so. Credit from Wagner-approved study-abroad programs may be used for completing a major or minor in Spanish. In addition to meeting with the Study Abroad Coordinator, students must have their study abroad courses approved by the chair of the department. Studying abroad fulfills the intermediate learning community requirement and all courses taught in a foreign language fulfill the International Perspectives requirement.
 
GENERAL GUIDELINES:
 
SP 103-104 (Spanish for Teachers) is designed for students who are going into childhood or adolescent education. SP 103 is a prerequisite for SP 104. Offered in summer sessions only.
