Reading Proficiency: Spanish

Gomez PaintingThe department will handle administration of the proficiency examinations. The intent is for the student to acquire reading proficiency, and eventually, although not required in the program, speaking proficiency. The examination will consist of translations of selected passages in the appropriate language.

Students can build proficiency through completion of the appropriate reading courses in Spanish. Students are also encouraged to participate in study abroad programs or to use appropriate materials and media in the Interactive Media Center in the University Library to build their reading skills. Students should contact the undergraduate program director, Department of Latin American and Caribbean Studies for more details.
