Skip to Recommended Four-Year Plans 2020 - 2021 site navigationSkip to main content

The recommended four-year plan is designed to provide a blueprint for students to complete their degrees within four years. These plans are the recommended sequences of courses. Students must meet with their Major Advisor to develop a more individualized plan to complete their degree.  This plan assumes that no developmental courses are required.  If developmental courses are needed, students may have additional requirements to fulfill, which are not listed in the plan.  For instance, students who are placed in the intermediate level, will start the language sequence in their second year.  Course offerings may vary from year to year.

NOTE: This recommended Four-Year Plan is applicable to students admitted into the major during the 2020-2021 academic year.

* The Spanish Language Studies major requirements assumes that students will have fluency beyond what is taught in Intermediate Spanish II. If you test below this level, you may be required to take Foundations of Spanish I-II and/or Intermediate Spanish I-II. If you test above Intermediate II, you may begin major courses starting with SPAN 301: The Art of Conversation.  Completing language courses at the 200-level or above indicates fulfillment of HGS school core language requirement. Note that SPAN 301 has a prerequisite of CRWT 102, so faculty prerequisite override would be necessary. 

Only Two GenEd courses may double count in the Major.
