Advanced Spanish in Context

Instructor: TBD / varies by section

SPAN 261 is a fifth-semester course that uses a variety of texts (literature, movies, newspaper articles, speeches, and essays) as a basis for reviewing grammatical concepts, developing writing competency, refining analytical skills, and improving overall communication abilities in Spanish. Through work on authentic and original texts, this course continues to focus on refining the four language skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening, as well as further developing critical analytical capacities. With the readings and films, students will explore their socio-historical context and analyze the application of different linguistic structures as tools employed to create meaning and convey a message. Students will be expected to do a significant amount of reading and writing in Spanish 261. * Honors section available

Note: SPAN 261 is the prerequisite for all upper-level courses in Spanish. Students may not receive credit for both SPAN 261 and SPAN 267.

Prerequisite: SPAN 204
