General Education Courses
The Department of Spanish and Italian offers Beginning and Intermediate language courses in Spanish, which satisfy the 6 credit General Education Requirements in foreign language.
Our first year courses help students develop basic communication skills with an emphasis on vocabulary building and functional grammar. In second year we focus on further enhancing the communicative skills acquired in previous coursework, with a particular emphasis on speaking. Students also work with longer written texts and cultural content.
SPAN 135 (Basic Spanish for Heritage Learners)

At Montclair State University, language courses are part of your General Education requirements; two (2) courses must be taken to satisfy your language requirement.
If not an absolute beginner (that is, a student with no prior exposure to the language and to its formal study), any prospective student of Italian should preliminarily take our Placement Test, administered in the Language Lab, to be placed at the right level.
