S275 Introduction to Hispanic Culture (3 credits)
P: S250 or equivalent.  This course serves as a bridge between the S200 and
S300 levels and is designed to increase proficiency in Spanish in the four
skills areas (listening, reading, writing, and speaking) through reading,
writing, and discussion of Hispanic culture.  S275 also serves to review and
expand upon all Spanish grammar elements studied at the 100 through 200
levels.  A variety of texts, conversational materials, and audiovisuals are
used in the course.  The format of the course includes a discussion of
readings and assigned topics, focused writing, and the writing of
compositions.  Evaluation is based on quizzes, tests, compositions,
homework, participation, and oral presentations. This course is required for
minors and majors unless the student tested into the 300 level. Course
conducted in Spanish. See Schedule of Classes for section numbers, times,
days, and rooms.  NOTE: Students who test out or place above S275 will need
to replace its 3 credits with an extra course at the S300 or S400 level.
