This course can replace UN 1025 Global Issues and counts for the Spanish minors. Students with AP Spanish or other previous Spanish experience who place into this course can earn 9 placement credits if they pass this class with a B or higher.

Feel free to contact myself or Professor Alegre-Figuero with any questions.
