Assessment
and Goals
:

Assessment: Students will be expected to produce an independent and sophisticated research paper that will be presented in a public forum. Goals: The end goal of the course will be for each student to expand a previously written paper into a research project, incorporating new techniques, sources, approaches and/or methods of inquiry.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THIS COURSE IS A NEW ADDITION TO THE SPANISH CURRICULUM AND PROVIDES A CAPSTONE EXPERIENCE FOR MAJORS IN THE PROGRAM. IT IS DESIGNED TO BE THE LOGICAL PROGRESSION FROM OUR 32XX AND 36XX COURSES, WHICH PROVIDE BOTH BROAD COVERAGE OF HISPANIC LITERATURE, CULTURE AND HISTORY, AS WELL AS MORE FOCUSED STUDIES OF PARTICULAR THEMES, AREAS, AUTHORS OR PERIODS WITHIN THE FIELD. THE SYMPOSIUM WILL ALLOW STUDENTS TO FURTHER DEVELOP SKILLS ACQUIRED IN THESE EARLIER COURSES WITH THE AIM OF BECOMING MORE INDEPENDENT READERS AND EFFECTIVE WRITERS.
