Writing Requirements in Spanish

Spanish majors must complete a minimum of 6 credit hours of general education WAC courses not part of students’ degree plans.  Those credits may consist of DSU’s College Composition I and II, which are writing intensive, or transfer courses or credit considered equivalent according to SBHE placement and transfer policies.  Spanish majors must complete an additional 12 hours of WAC/WID courses from the list below, all of which are writing intensive:

SPAN 321 Advanced Spanish (3)

SPAN 350 Hispanic Civilization and Culture (2)

SPAN 425 Hispanic Literature (3)

SPAN 440 Senior Conversation and Composition (3)

SPAN 499 Special Topics (1-6)

SPAN 480 Senior Project (1)  

Writing intensive credit may also be available through alternative means, such as completing other upper-level courses, including internships, which require extensive guided instruction and recursive practice in writing.  Such alternative credit requires the student to submit a writing portfolio documenting the intensive writing accompanied by a program substitution form filed by the department Chair.
