The Language, Society and Cultural Studies (LSCS) program is intended for students who have completed four semesters of college Spanish (SPAN 204) or the equivalent. In LSCS students will choose five of the ten courses offered. Subject areas include art, language, literature, history, and politics. Classes are taken with other LSCS students at CINECU. The program offers year, fall, or spring options. Year long students who begin in the LSCS program in the fall semester will move up to the Specialized Area Studies (SAS) program for the Spring semester.
Students will choose from classes offered in Spanish and in English. You will choose five classes from the classes listed. You may choose up to two classes taught in English.
Below are the courses that may be offered for LSCS students. NOTE: Not all classes will be offered every semester.

You are expected to attend classes on a regular basis, take all exams as scheduled by the professor, and turn in written work as required for the individual course.
