Course Descriptions


Course Classification

Lower division courses are 1000 and 2000 level courses; upper division courses are 3000 and 4000 level courses. A course identified by two numbers and separated by a hyphen (i.e. 1010-1020) means that the first course, identified by the lower number, is a prerequisite for the second course, identified by the higher number. A slanted line between two course numbers (i.e. 3010/3020) means that the first course is not a prerequisite of the other. The number set within the parenthesis following the course title is the number of semester credits assigned to successful completion of the course (i.e.) (3). Interdisciplinary courses are identified by an “I” preceding the course number.

Hispanic Studies (Spanish)

Foreign language courses provide practical experience in oral and written communication. They also engender an understanding and appreciation in the culture of another people as expressed through geography, history, social organization, literature and fine arts. Foreign language study also gives students an appreciation of their native tongue.

The study of a foreign language and culture prepares students to use skills and understanding in careers related to education, business, government, health care and social services. It also prepares them for graduate work.

Mount Saint Mary College offers introductory courses in French, German and Italian (see course descriptions) and a major and minor in Hispanic Studies (Spanish) (see Hispanic Studies  and course descriptions).

   •  SPA 1010 - Basic Spanish I
   •  SPA 1020 - Basic Spanish II
