SPAN 306: Advanced Spanish (3 credits)

SPAN 306 is a requirement for students willing to complete a minor in Spanish. It is offered always in the Fall Term and is one of our most advanced language courses. We encourage students to take it together with SPAN 334 (Spanish Composition) offered in the Winter Term.

This course is designed for students who successfully completed SPAN 200 and have a working knowledge of the language. The objective of the class is to improve your overall proficiency in spoken and written Spanish to an advanced level.

In SPAN 306 you will use Spanish in a variety of contexts, review complex grammatical constructions, and be exposed to representative texts from the target culture appropriate to developing your critical reading and writing skills. You will also attain a deeper understanding of the significant social, cultural, historical, and political aspects of the Spanish-speaking world, which will prepare you to participate in higher-level academic courses in Spanish.

Although SPAN 200 is a prerequisite for this course we accept students who did not complete that course but whose proficiency corresponds to the advanced level. If you have any questions concerning your level of Spanish and/or your placement, please, contact one of our faculty members and request an override.
