Due to heavy demand, several classes within the department are reserved for majors and minors only. Please plan ahead! It can take up to two weeks for your college office to process your declaration and recognize you as a major or minor. We recommend declaring at least two weeks before registration.

How to Declare

Spanish & Portuguese Studies Majors

To declare a Spanish studies or Spanish/Portuguese studies major, you need to follow the steps below:

  1. Complete the Major Orientation Module in Moodle.
  2. Print off log-in form.
  3. Schedule a 30-minute major declaration appointment with the advising office.
  4. Develop a list of questions you would like addressed at your declaration meeting.
  5. Bring log-in form and your questions to your major declaration appointment.

Spanish Studies Minor

Students wishing to declare a Spanish studies minor need to attend a Spanish studies minor declaration session. These hour-long sessions are scheduled multiple times throughout the semester. Because we cover so much information in a short period of time, if you are more than five minutes late you will have to attend a different declaration session. Sign up for a minor declaration session.

Portuguese Studies Minor

Schedule a Portuguese Studies minor declaration appointment with the advising office.
