So, you’re going to Granada?
At the University of Granada, there are two levels:
Curso de Lengua y Cultura Españolas, which is the Intermediate level
Curso de Estudios Hispánicos, which is the advanced level
Into which level will you place?
This is difficult to know for sure. If you have already completed
several ISU Spanish classes at the 200-level, it is more likely that
you will place into the Curso de Estudios Hispánicos. If you
have only taken 116.15 or 213.15 at ISU, it is likely that you will
place into the Curso de Lengua y Cultura Españolas, but you won’t
know for certain until you take the placement test upon your arrival.
What if I plan to be in the Curso de Estudios Hispánicos
and end up in the Curso de Lengua y Cultura españolas?
This is why you must have a back-up plan.
You must write down what you would take
should you place into either level.
You must also have backup elective courses.
Some students are unable to get into the
elective course(s) that they had planned for.
Write a list of these backup courses for each
Do you know which Spanish classes you have left to complete your major or minor?
Look at the handout that I have given to you w/your specific details on it.
Look on your Progress Toward My Degree under your major or minor plan
and make a list of courses that you still need to take. Use this list to help
you choose classes to take in Granada. You can also use this list as you
register for the semester following your study in Granada.
Look at your General Education courses. How many do you have
left to take? Make a list of the ones you have yet to complete.
Look to see if you can get credit for any of these in Granada.
You can also refer to this list while as you register for the
semester following your study in Granada.
Keep in mind that when you register for Spring 12 while in Granada, you may
need a “Prerequisite Override” because the computer does not recognize what
you are taking abroad. Registration for any class requiring the prereq. of 213,
215, 233 or 243 will require this override. Contact me for this.
