S275 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 are used in the course. The format of the course includes
a discussion of readings and assigned topics, oral presentations,
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.
