Most students in our courses are not necessarily majoring in Spanish. Often students continue to take Spanish while pursuing a major in a different department simply because they are interested in the language and culture.

If you are interested in the minor, you have until the second week of your tenth term to declare it. The Declaration of Minor Form can be found on the Registrar’s Office website (this form requires the department chair’s signature).

Minor Requirements

Students who pursue the Minor in Spanish are required to complete 36 credits with a C- or better beyond the 103 level.

  • All courses must be taught in Spanish.
  • Spanish 204 may count toward the minor.
  • At least 12 credits in upper-level literature courses (300-395) are required.
  • We limit the number of non-Carleton OCS credits that can be applied to the minor to a maximum of 12, and these credits do not substitute for the 12 credits at the 300-level that students must complete on campus or through the departmental OCS programs.

Students who place out of 204 must still complete the six-course requirement (36 credits).
