Spanish Minor

General Requirements for Minors

Minors are available in Chinese, French, and Spanish. French and Spanish minors are required to take six upper-division courses in the appropriate language area beyond the intermediate level, preferably two 200-level courses and four 300-level courses.

One departmental elective taught in English (an ML course), or other courses taught in English with a French and Francophone focus (French minors) may be included among the six courses. 

Students who minor in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and study abroad must take half of their course requirements for the minor at Loyola. Upon their return from study abroad, all students with a minor in Chinese, French, or Spanish must take one 300-level course in the language of their minor at Loyola.

Specific Requirements for Minors:

In Spanish, minors must take SN 201 , SN 203 , one culture course (SN 301-310), and three literature or linguistics courses (SN 320  or above). An ML course may be substituted for one of the SN 300-level courses. Minors studying abroad must take at least one SN 300 level course after they return to Loyola.


Besides the traditional Minor in Chinese, French, or Spanish, students may elect to apply some approved departmental courses to an interdisciplinary Minor in Asian Studies, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Italian Studies, Latin American and Latino Studies, or Medieval Studies.
