Department of Modern Language

The Department of Modern Languages will soon use a new program for Spanish 101 and 102. This new program, Portales, will replace our current program, Aventuras. Summer 2017 online classes will use Aventuras. All fall 2017 sections of SPAN 101 will begin the new program, but all fall sections of SPAN 102 will continue to use Aventuras (4th edition). Students who still need to take SPAN 102 and have already purchased the Aventuras program are encouraged to take the course this fall. After fall semester ALL sections of SPAN 101 & 102 will use the new program. If you have any questions please contact the Department of Modern Languages.
