*Many students begin their university studies with substantial proficiency in Spanish and therefore, should begin their program of study with the first course in the Spanish major, SPAN 38211. Other students may need to complete one or more of the prerequisite courses: SPAN 18201, SPAN 18202, SPAN 28201, SPAN 28202. Starting Spanish studies in the appropriate courses(s) is critical to on-time graduation. All students intending to major in Spanish should contact a Spanish faculty advisor in the department of Modern and Classical Language Studies for individualized placement and advising information prior to enrolling in their first Spanish course. Students entering the university with substantial knowledge of Spanish should consider taking the College-Level Examination Program (http://career.kent.edu/home/testing/t_clep.cfm ) through which they may receive up to 14 hours of university credit. Students wishing to earn credit through CLEP should take the exam several weeks prior to enrolling in their first Spanish course to ensure eligibility, timely granting of credits, and timely placement into the correct Spanish courses(s).
** All courses taken from the list of major program requirements are used in the calculation of the major GPA.
*** A minimum C grade must be earned in SPAN 38330, 38331, 38334, 38335 or 48230 to fulfill writing-intensive requirement.
**** The Subject Area Specialty is a departmentally approved coherent sequence of courses in one or more other disciplines (i.e., not in the Department of Modern and Classical Language Studies). In order to be approved, the Subject Area Specialty must include courses in an area or areas that are currently marketable, such as business, legal studies, international relations, political science, computer science, chemistry, physics or other "hard" sciences. The Subject Area Specialty may include up to 17 credit hours of a different language in the sequence through composition/conversation. It may also optionally include MCLS 28404 The Latin American Experience and MCLS 28405 The Spanish Experience. Total credits: 27. The recommended Kent Core courses (see Kent Core Summary) may be included within this area with advisor approval.
