Students take beginning and intermediate Spanish courses (SPA 110, SPA 111, SPA 220, and SPA 221) as needed- those who have completed two, three or four years of high-school Spanish or any community college Spanish will be placed in the appropriate semester of college Spanish in consultation with a departmental advisor. 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. All Spanish Literature minors must take SPA 280 at CSUDH.
