- Some students are only required to take three semesters of a foreign language. In that third semester, we can encourage them to take one more course of the basic language series.
- Many students on our campus are required to take four semester of basic language courses. During that fourth semester, we can reach out to them and let them know that they have everything they need to start taking courses in the major and minor. And even if they don't want to commit to the major or minor, there are some "fun" classes that they can take, just to keep up their Spanish.
- When our minors have taken their required 300-level courses, we can show them how easily they can take a few more courses and graduate with a major.
- When students are finishing a semester abroad, we can encourage them to take more classes when they come back to campus and finish up a minor or even spring for a major.
