Students may earn 12 – 19 credits each semester. In summer terms students may earn 4 – 6 credits each term. All of your classes will be in Spanish. Advanced students may study Spanish art, history, culture, literature, and grammar. They may also take the Acción Solidaria (Service Learning) course. Beginner and Intermediate students follow a set track throughout the semester, increasing their knowledge of the Spanish language and culture. SIS staff will assist students to select the appropriate language level for their abilities.
Transfer Credit Possibilities
Most SIS courses will be Spanish language acquisition courses for Corban University students. Corban students may earn a maximum of 9 credits, on study abroad, toward the 12-credit foreign language requirements of a BA. Foreign language courses taken after the 12 credits are fulfilled will be applied at Corban University as Humanities Elective credit.
All course substitutions require a Course Substitution Form signed and approved by the appropriate department chair(s) and the Registrar’s Office. Contact the CGE to pick up and submit a Course Substitution Form and request help.
