HISP-S 275 Introduction to Hispanic Culture (3 credits)
Prerequisite: 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 Spanish grammar elements studied at the 100
through 200 levels. One text, with various conversational, visual
components, is used in the course. The format of the course includes
discussions of readings and assigned topics, oral presentations, and
writing 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.  The course is conducted in Spanish.  Check on-
line in Onestart at Schedule of Classes for class numbers, times,
days, and rooms.

Note: Students who test out or place above HISP-S 275 will need to
replace its 3 credits with an extra course at the HISP-S 300 or
HISP-S 400 level.
