Students enrolled in any degree program may pursue a minor designation in Spanish and Latin American Studies.

The Spanish Minor requires successful completion of a minimum of four academic course units (eight courses) in Spanish with a minimum cumulative average of 65%, including:

  • No more than 0.5 unit of SPAN courses taught in the English language may be counted toward the Spanish Minor. 


  1. Please consult the Undergraduate Officer in Spanish for the Spanish Minor.
  2. By agreement, students at the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University can be expected to take courses in Spanish at either university. While most language courses are taught concurrently every year at both universities, most other courses are taught either at one university or the other, and a few courses may rotate from year to year.
  3. With the permission of the Department, students may spend the third year enrolled in an acceptable university in Spain or Latin America.
