Spanish, B.A.


About the Spanish Bachelor's Program


The Bachelor of Arts in Spanish consists of 30 hours at the 2000-level and above, including a minimum of four 4000-level courses. The Spanish major requires 6 hours of grammar courses from SPAN 3305 , SPAN 4305 , and SPAN 4343 . Students must make a C or better in departmental courses to be eligible for graduation.

Communication Literacy Requirement. Students attending Texas Tech University for the first time in the Fall 2017 term or later will complete a Communication Literacy (CL) requirement in their program(s) of study.

Texas Tech University’s transition from the Writing Intensive requirement to the Communication Literacy requirement signals the university’s awareness that in addition to the fundamental role that writing plays in enabling students to explore, develop, focus, and organize a message, other types of communication must also be taught as appropriate for a student’s discipline. Throughout each program of study, then, students must be given ample opportunity to develop their skills in forms of communication central to that program. Spanish majors must also complete a minimum of three communication literacy courses from SPAN 3303 , SPAN 3306 , SPAN 3307 , SPAN 3315 , SPAN 4303 , SPAN 4307 , and SPAN 4346 .
