The Spanish Program
(Major, Minors and Masters) has been Suspended.
Dear WNMU community,
As some of you may know, Western New Mexico University has recently undertaken a review of all academic programs. The purpose of this review was to determine where resources should be placed to ensure resources are used wisely and efficiently. As a result of this analysis, the Spanish program was ‘suspended’ until further notice and is in the first phase of a ‘Teach Out’ plan.
This Teach Out plan will offer the students (currently declared as Spanish major, minor -or- concentrations) the classes they need to finish their degree plans in a timely manner.
Currently declared student should plan to enroll in the courses as they are made available.
~All current Major and Minors must be complete their degree plan requirements no later than June 30, 2018 ~
The current TEACH OUT plan of courses offered for the next three semesters is as follows:
Summer 2015: Summer schedule goes live- Monday, March 16th 2015
SPAN 201 Intermediate Spanish I Session B (June 1st – 30th)
SPAN 202 Intermediate Spanish II Session C (July 6th –Aug 4th)
SPAN 201 Intermediate Spanish I
SPAN 303 Hispanic Culture
SPAN 320 Spanish/English Bilingualism
SPAN 410 Spanish American Lit I (cross listed with 510)
SPAN 450 Chicano Lit (cross listed with CCHS)
SPAN 202 Intermediate Spanish II
SPAN 308 Advanced Grammar & Composition
SPAN 402 Spanish in Community
SPAN 411 Spanish American Lit II
This web page will be the avenue of communication for all changes and updates for the Spanish program during this transition. We will revisit the Teach Out plan in the fall to reassess the need of our students.
The lower-level Spanish Classes that are offered as general education and language requirements and any other classes that are offered as a part of other degree plans will continue to be taught and supplemented with upper-level service courses needed by degree plans in other majors.
We are sorry for an inconvenience this may cause. If you were considered Spanish as part of your educational program while at WNMU and you are not currently a declared major or minor, we recommend that you visit with your academic advisor to explain your particular situation or stop by the College of Arts and Sciences (CASa) office GRC-D (phone: 538-6207; email: firstname.lastname@example.org) so that we can address your questions or concerns.

Dean, College of Arts and Sciences
Below is another way to view the current plan. We have not yet set a schedule beyond Spring 16.
