SPAN 325: Hispanic Civilization from 1800 to the Present (3 credits)

If you want to understand the contemporary Spanish-speaking world, you can’t miss this course! It offers an extensive yet tangible view of contemporary cultures, historical events, and political conflicts that shaped Latin America, Spain, and the Spanish-speaking communities in Canada and the United States.

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.

SPAN 325 is taught entirely in Spanish and students are required to submit substantial essays in Spanish in the course of the term. In order to take full advantage of this course we encourage our students to take SPAN 306 and SPAN 334 before enrolling in SPAN 325 or to take them simultaneously.
