SPAN 374: Spanish American Literature from the Conquest to Modernity (3 credits)

The encounter between Europeans and Indigenous peoples in the Americas is one of the most intriguing moments in history. In SPAN 374 you will discuss texts produced by Spanish conquistadors and Indigenous peoples throughout the colonial period. 

Although SPAN 200 is a prerequisite for this course we accept students who did not complete it 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 374 is taught entirely in Spanish and students are required to submit substantial essays in that language 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 374.
