SPAN 3030 is a three-credit intermediate course designed to polish the linguistic skills acquired at the 2000 level in such a way that the student successfully transitions to advanced-level comprehension and conversation. The material covered in this course serves as a point of departure to increase student vocabulary on a wide range of cultural, political, and ideological topics relevant not only to the Spanish-speaking world but also to the non-Spanish-speaking ports of call. Students will focus on expressing their own beliefs and experiences with sensitivity and will engage in an ongoing dialogue about what it means to be a global citizen. This is not a lecture course but rather a seminar meant to foster interpersonal communication and cultural understanding; therefore active verbal participation will be required from each student during each class session.
SPAN 3010 (Grammar Review), AP Spanish score of 4 or 5, or Placement Test score above 535
