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. 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
class 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.
