  • Students must pass a 12th credit language requirement (i.e., Spanish 003). If a student does not need to take the first and/or second semester(s) of a language, those credits will need to be replaced with electives (4 credits if starting in Spanish 002, 8 credits if starting in Spanish 003. Please note: Spanish 003 is only offered in the Spring and Summer semesters. It is highly recommended that students who start in Spanish 001 in the Fall semester take Spanish 002 in the Spring semester and Spanish 003 in the Summer.

 

 

Program Notes: As long as two Arts (GA), two Humanities (GH), and two Social Sciences (GS) are taken across the eight semesters, the particular order in which these courses are taken is not relevant. The course series listed above is only one of many possible ways to move through the LASCC curriculum.
Academic Advising Notes: A Program Proposal must be written and submitted at the end of the fourth semester. The 400-level courses must be in a minimum of three different disciplines, with nine of the twelve credits being within the humanities and social sciences. A student’s career/graduate school plans should be considered in developing an individual academic plan. Be sure to consult an adviser in this department when scheduling courses.
