Educational Outlook

Currently, I have 86 credits. I anticipate adding another 15 at the end of the fall semester. That will give me a total of 101 credits and leave me with 19 more to complete before I can graduate.

Courses remaining:

  • Any LING class for 3 credits
  • Any LING class for 3 credits
  • ENGL 302 Advanced Composition (or I have the option to submit a portfolio) for 6 credits
  • ENGL 336 Shakespeare's Romances and Tragedies for 3 credits
  • MATH 105 Precalculus or 106 for Quantitative Reasoning for 3 credits

Together, these classes are worth a total of 18 credits. After these have been completed I will have 1 credit hour leftover.

I have gone back and forth on my decision whether or not to minor in Spanish. On the one hand, a minor in Spanish could potentially give me credibility as a fluent speaker of Spanish and thereby afford me more job opportunities. On the other hand, I may not need it and I would be able to graduate sooner without it.

If I do the minor I will need to complete an additional 9 credits. These are the classes I am considering:

  • SPAN 390 Intro to Hispanic Literature for 3 credits
  • SPAN 351 Oral Spanish for 3 credits
  • SPAN 451 Advanced Oral Spanish for 3 credits
