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 in Fall 2018. The classes can only be offered in special session.
Here is the Spring 2018 Beginning Spanish syllabus -as a sample.
Important Note: MLIS special session students must have completed INFO 203, in order to be given a permission number to take a language class.
Note: 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.
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.
