Minor in Spanish

Binghamton University
Department of Romance Languages and Literatures
Minor in Spanish



1. Six 4-credit courses starting at the 200 level (thus, 115, 1115, and 175 are excluded: once you begin the sequence of courses, you cannot move back in the curriculum course offerings)
2. One of the six courses must be in literature
3. Two must be at the 300 or 400 level
4. Three of the six courses must be completed on campus or through* Binghamton, at least one of which must be at the 300 or 400 level

Please note:
1. Students with native fluency in written and oral Spanish may not take SPAN 250.
2. No courses may be taken in English for the minor in Spanish.
3. A minimum grade of "C" is required for any course in Spanish applied toward
the minor; as such, taking a course Pass/ Fail would not count.
4. *Study Abroad courses in the department-sponsored program (Madrid/Malaga)
are considered "campus" courses.


In order for the computer to accept a request for a Minor to be added, a student must
have completed 60 credits of course-work; you are welcome to sign up early, however.
1. Fill out a "Declaration of Major and Minor Form" (in hallway outside LN-2216).
2. Meet with the advisor to minors for appropriate signature(s) and processing — see
office hours listed below.
3. A copy from our office will be sent back to you once the processing is complete.
General tips:
1. Be sure to check your Degree Works periodically to make sure you are completing/
have completed the requirements for the minor — do not wait until your final year
to first check.
2. Students who wish to study abroad must meet with the advisor listed below prior
to attending a given program; this way, students can be sure that the courses
taken will count toward their degree.
