Eligibility / How to Enroll
To take this course, students require prior knowledge of Spanish (i.e. have passed level B1.1, CLM – 4 Intermediate). (See specifications of level test). CLM recommends students to take an Intensive Spanish Language Course (CILE) in September or January before beginning the Spanish Language and Culture Course.
Students who successfully complete CLCE in the Fall can then enrol in the Hispanic Studies Course in the spring. Those who have completed ten subjects in total (CLCE Fall and CEH Spring) will be entitled to receive the Diploma in Hispanic Studies.
Those students with lower levels of Spanish, between level A1 (beginner) to B1.1 (intermediate), can do the two obligatory subjects from Spanish Language (Speaking and Writing Skills and Spanish Grammar) and complete the rest of the course in English.
