A. FACULTY OF ARTS REQUIREMENTS
Students must adhere to the applicable Faculty of Arts requirements in 3.4 Graduation.
B. MAJOR-FIELD REQUIREMENTS
The BA program is designed to help students learn and achieve proficiency in Spanish. Instruction will consist of courses in language, linguistics, literature and film, using the target language. Students will acquire a broad knowledge of the Spanish language, Hispanic films, as well as of the literatures of Spain and the Spanish-American countries. The BA Honours strengthens the foundation in Spanish and is an excellent preparation for graduate studies. The BA/BEd and double-majors (Spanish/Italian, Spanish/French), should be of particular interest to students seeking to combine Spanish with another major.
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 301. In all cases of doubt students are strongly urged to seek the advice of the School.
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)
*Spanish 205 can be substituted for Spanish 203 and 301.
- 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) from courses labelled Spanish at the 400 level
- 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.
- Students entering with Spanish 30 or the equivalent may be exempted from Spanish 201. Please consult with the Spanish Undergraduate Advisor for appropriate placement. Students placed 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.
- It is strongly recommended that students 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).
