SPANISH M.A. / IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ON THE COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION UNDER THE SEMESTER SYSTEM:

-The comprehensive examination will be offered in Spring semester. Students are therefore advised to complete their coursework within four years, so that they can have three attempts to pass the exam with no courses expired. Students must submit their petition for Advancement to Candidacy after successfully completing four courses from their M.A. program and passing WPE (Writing Proficiency Exam).

-The Historical Linguistics course (SPAN 501) is no longer a requirement for graduate students who started their program under the quarter system. They can either change the their catalog year (to FALL 2016), or do a course substitution (with another 5000-level course such as SPAN 5750 – Seminar: Hispanic Literature).

-Students who have already taken the comprehensive exam and failed the Historical Linguistics portion will have to register for it again. If the only section they failed is Historical Linguistics, next time they register they will automatically get a Pass. If they also failed other sections, they will not have to take the exam on Historical Linguistics, but will have to retake any other failed exams. This is not retroactive.

ADDITIONAL REMINDER: Students need to submit a Leave of Absence form if they decide to take more than one semester of absence; otherwise, they will need to reapply to be readmitted to the program.
