SPAN281 - Hispanic Literature and Culture II


As a continuation of SPAN 280, this course is designed to further develop students' knowledge and understanding of important elements of Hispanic culture and civilization as well as to advance their oral, listening, writing, and reading comprehension proficiencies in Spanish. Representative literary works of Spanish and Latin American authors are covered primarily through class discussions and small group work. (This course is open to native Spanish speakers. They should have the equivalent reading and writing ability in SPANISH to take this course.) This course is conducted exclusively in Spanish. It is not a grammar course but rather an advanced introduction to literature and culture. Prerequisites: SPAN 280; prior or concurrent enrollment in ENGL 101; RDNG 116 if required by placement testing. 3 Cr. (3 Lec.) Occasionally.
