¿Hablas Español?

¿Sabes que si tomas el examen CLEP -administrado en la oficina de Academic Success, aquí en el campus-y sacas 64 puntos o más recibes 12 créditos de WSU, equivalentes a SP101, SP102, SP210, y SP211?

¿Sabes que si sacas 64 o más en el CLEP, sólo necesitas 2 cursos más del nivel 300 para completar un MINOR EN ESPAÑOL, que te haga más atractivo en el mercado de trabajo?

¿Y sabes que puedes usar un curso como SP390- Spanish for Native Speakers para que cuente al mismo tiempo para tu MINOR y para los requisitos de TLC (Though, Language & Culture) y DAC (Diversity Across the Curriculum) de LASC (general education)?

No es necesario tomar el CLEP ahora: puedes hacerlo incluso después de tomar cursos de español más avanzado -si sacas un puntaje de 64 o más, recibirás tus créditos de manera retroactiva.

Sácale partido al español que YA SABES y toma un curso de español esta primavera.

Si quieres más información, contacta con la profesora Pérez-Manrique - aperezmanrique@worcester.edu o con otro profesor del departamento.

First Gen Celebration just for you

Big picture
The First Gen committee would like to invite all students who identify as First Generation Student to celebrate! This means neither of your parents have a bachelor's degree which means you have much to be proud of! We hope you will stop by the Lancer Loft on Monday, November 4 between 1pm and 3pm to have a fall-themed snack (pumpkin spiced coffee, hot apple cider, pumpkin whoopie pies, carrot cake muffins, and more). Pop by to unwind (you've earned it), take your picture, enter a raffle, and meet other first generation students, staff, and faculty!

This celebration is in honor of National First Gen Day (yes, there's a day created just for you!) on November 8 but we will be acknowledging this important accomplishment on November 4.

We hope to see you there!
