HISP 388 - Hispanic Studies Junior Seminar
The Hispanic Studies Junior Seminar provides an opportunity for Hispanic Studies majors and minors to have professional and personal engagement with all of the faculty members in the department. A primary objective of the course is to create community and stimulate lively intellectual discussion between students and faculty before the senior year.
Each faculty member or pair of faculty members will present on a significant literary, cultural, linguistic or theoretical concept in their area of specialty. The reading requirement will be carefully considered and consistent with a one-credit hour course. Students are expected to read the indicated text and contribute to commentary and criticism of the text in group discussions.
The course will be evaluated S/N only (pass/fail) but students will benefit enormously from the engagement with faculty members and their peers, familiarization with the discipline and the formation of a sense of community within the department. Prerequisite(s): Hispanic Studies majors and minors only. Every semester. (1 Credits)
