SPAN 5020

SPAN 5020-Spanish for Graduate Students is offered every semester and session.  SPAN 5020 allows non-Spanish graduate students to earn graduate credit for undergraduate Spanish classes. Graduate students enrolled in SPAN 5020 may join any section at any undergraduate level to begin to learn or to continue to learn Spanish. SPAN 5020 may be repeated semester after semester until students attain their desired proficiency in the language. Contact the Department of Spanish for more information or for assistance with registration.


If you have not taken classes recently (or ever) at WMU, you can learn more about the admission process to both the Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degree in Spanish programs. With non-degree graduate status (permission to take graduate classes) you can enroll in graduate-level courses even though you may not have applied yet for a particular graduate program.
