Major elective courses: courses such as History of Chile, Contemporary Politics in Argentina, Spanish Baroque Art, etc. may receive credit towards the major as part of its two electives, as long as the appropriate NU department approves them as equivalent to their own courses and no credit is sought for them in another NU department. Students should contact the appropriate department to determine the equivalency of these courses prior to meeting with the faculty adviser in the Spanish and Portuguese department.
