The Spanish minor consists of seven courses in Spanish beyond the elementary level (i.e. SPAN 103). At least one of the seven courses must be a 300-level course offered by Bates faculty, which may be taught in Spanish or a cross-listed course taught in English. One Short Term course offered by the Spanish department may be counted toward the minor. Advanced Placement courses may not be counted toward the minor.

Off-campus study. Minors may receive a maximum of two credits for one semester, and three for two semesters of study in a recommended program in a Spanish-speaking country.

Pass/Fail Grading Option. The use of the pass/fail option is restricted to one course, but may not be elected for the 300-level course.
