Possible SIP topics are film, literature, and cultural studies in the Spanish-speaking world.
SIPs in the Spanish department must be written in Spanish. If a student wishes to work with a Spanish faculty member on a SIP written in English, they should register for a LANG or IDSY SIP.
SPAN 301 and one 400 level course in Spanish are required to undertake a SIP in Spanish.
Students considering writing a SIP in the Spanish Department must meet with Spanish faculty during spring quarter of their junior year to establish a research and writing timeline.
