A. FACULTY OF ARTS REQUIREMENTS
Students must adhere to the applicable Faculty of Arts requirements in 3.4 Graduation.
B. MAJOR-FIELD REQUIREMENTS
Students should choose a first course appropriate to their command of the language. Students with no previous training in Spanish will normally begin with Spanish 201. Those with credit in Spanish 30, 31 or equivalent should normally enrol in Spanish 203. In all cases of doubt students are strongly urged to seek the advice of the School and indeed are encouraged to do so at all stages of their program of study.
Students must successfully complete a minimum of 42 units (7.0 full-course equivalents) and a maximum of 60 units (10.0 full-course equivalents) in the Field of Spanish while fulfilling the following requirements:
Core Language Sequence: 21 units (3.5 full-course equivalents) consisting of Spanish 201, 203, 301, 303 and 323, 405, 505. Spanish 205 can be substituted for Spanish 203 and 301.
(a) 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) from courses labelled Spanish at the 400 level.
(b) 9 units (1.5 full-course equivalents) from the Field of Spanish at the 500 level.
C. DEGREE OPTIONS
The BA in Spanish can be taken with Co-operative Education. See section 3.4.4 Co-operative Education Programs for information and requirements.
- The School offers language courses and non-language courses. The language sequence in B.1 must be taken in the set order except that Spanish 303 and 323 may be and normally should be taken concurrently. Since careful degree planning is necessary to meet prerequisites, students should work closely with the School and the Arts Students' Centre.
- Students entering with Spanish 30 or the equivalent may be exempted from Spanish 201 and enter directly into Spanish 203 or 205. Please consult with the School for appropriate placement. Students starting at a higher level than Spanish 201 must replace those language courses from which they have been exempted by any Spanish non-language courses (literature, linguistics, civilization, culture) or by any senior Romance Studies (ROST) courses.
- Spanish 205 is a 6 unit course (1.0 full-course equivalent) offered in a single term that is designed primarily for students entering with Spanish 30 or equivalent who wish to progress quickly though the curriculum.
- It is strongly recommended that students, in consultation with the School, choose an area of focus consisting of at least 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) from disciplines related to their interests in the Hispanic world (from areas such as Political Science, History, Latin American Studies or Women's Studies).
