To be eligible for a minor in Spanish, the student must complete 15 hours of Spanish courses that must include Spanish 2001 (fall semester) and Spanish 2002 (spring semester). The remaining 9 hours must be Spanish courses at the 3000 level (offered on a rotating basis). All courses must be completed with a grade of C or better.
