Additional Major – Spanish for the Professions
Students who are certified in a major may seek an additional major in Spanish for the Professions. This additional major does not lead to a degree. The additional major requires 38 credits, as follows: 1) Language Foundation (14 credits) -- SPANISH 101, 102, 203, and 261. Note that most students entering WSU will have already fulfilled the equivalent of the 101 and 102 courses, if they choose to pursue the same foreign language for this major; 2) Intermediate Language (6 credits) -- Two courses from SPANISH 306, 307, or 308; 3) Language for Specific Purposes (6 credits) -- SPANISH 320 or 321 [DIVR]; and 361, 362, 363, 364, or 365; and 4) Upper-level Experience (12 credits) -- Integrative Capstone [CAPS]; two Writing in the Major courses (see department); and FOR LANG 495, Internship / Service Learning / Undergraduate Research / Study Abroad (for 8 weeks minimum). No course in which a C- or lower grade is earned will be counted toward the additional major. No course taken pass/fail may be included for credit toward the major. No course may be repeated for credit toward the major unless thus designated in the catalog. No course may count for both the major and the minor. The STAMP 4S (Standards-based Measurement of Proficiency) web-based assessment of foreign language proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, and listening and will be taken during the semester in which the student is completing the final course for the major taught in the target language.
