World Languages

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  for Fall 2016.  The classes can only be offered in special session.

Important Note: MLIS students must have completed the following core classes INFO 200, 202, 203, 204 in order to be given a permission number to take a language class.

The classes are upper division and they count towards your 43 unit MLIS degree. Each class is 3 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 sent in July


Counting the Classes Towards Your Degree

List the foreign language classes in the Other Department section of your candidacy form; or put them on your course substitution form.

Important: The maximum number of units that can be transferred into your MLIS degree (in total– not just language classes but all transfers) is 9 units.
