SPAN 364: Spanish Literature from the Middle Ages to the Enlightenment (3 credits)


Spain was once the most powerful Empire on the planet and created an influential literature that left its mark on the rest of the world. In this course you will learn about El Cid, Don Quijote, Don Juan, and other icons of the literary tradition of the Spanish Golden Age that to this day exist in the popular imagination of the Western world.

Although SPAN 200 is a prerequisite for this course we accept students who did not complete that course but whose proficiency corresponds to the advanced level. If you have any questions concerning your level of Spanish and/or your placement, please, contact one of our faculty members and request an override.

SPAN 364 is taught entirely in Spanish and students are required to submit substantial essays in Spanish in the course of the term. In order to take full advantage of this course we encourage our students to take SPAN 306 and SPAN 334 before enrolling in SPAN 364.
