Students may get credit for some of these courses through the Advanced Placement Examination in either Language or Literature, by challenging them (but never in descending order), and/or by transferring equivalent courses from other institutions.
The Modern Languages Department strongly recommends those students who need additional fluency in Spanish to travel to a Spanish-speaking country (under the guidance of an advisor) or to take SPA 230 Spanish Conversation (3) before they take SPA 280.
