World Languages Overview

As a joint venture of the School of Information and the Department of World Languages and Literatures we are happy to offer Beginning Spanish and Intermediate Spanish for Fall  2017.  The classes can only be offered in special session. 

Important Note: MLIS special session students must have completed INFO 203, in order to be given a permission number to take a language class.

New: Each class is 4 units.

The classes are upper division 100 level classes and they count towards your 43 unit MLIS degree.  

Note, for planning purposes: The maximum number of units, combined, that can be transferred into your MLIS degree, (from iSchool Open Classes, SJSU World Languages or other institutions such as WISE) is 9 units. 

Here is a link to the Spring 2017 syllabus for Beginning Spanish. When the fall 2017 syllabi become available for the 4 unit Beginning Spanish and Intermediate Spanish classes, we will provide the links.

Requesting a "Seat" in the Language Classes

Note: When you are given a permission number to register for the class you will also be given the course code.

Permission numbers will be distributed when we have received them from the World Languages department.
