    Language class dependent on language placement test results OR current Spanish language track. Students who have already completed four semesters of Spanish (or equivalent) can enroll in up to two 300-level language courses. No more than two 300-level Spanish language courses (LS 306, LS 307, LS 308, LS 310, LS 311) may be taken for credit at Boston University; students who have already taken two 300-level language courses should choose a literature course and three elective courses.
    SP: taught in Spanish. Prerequisites: 5th Semester Spanish or equivalent EN: taught in English. Prerequisites: none. Classes are subject to a minimum enrollment and may be cancelled if this number is not met. Classes are also subject to a max capacity. Internship students: choose 2 electives and 'Internship' Science students: only choose 1 elective if taking 2 UAM science courses

NOTE: Elective course offerings vary and may not be offered every semester. Courses are subject to minimum enrollment and will not be held if this number is not met. Course selection is on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to designated groups (SCI, ENG, etc.). Classes are also subject to maximum occupancy. Once capacity is reached, students may be added to a waitlist.

Students should enroll in the Spanish class that matches the results of their language placement test / continue with their Spanish track at BU. Native Spanish speakers should enroll in a 400-level class (Fall/Spring).

Students should be aware that course selection varies from semester to semester, depending on the needs of the group as a whole as well as professor’s availability. Classes are subject to a minimum enrollment that must be met in order to be held. Classes are also subject to a max occupancy number and should this number be reached, no additional students will be admitted.  BU Madrid may open waitlists for these classes. Registration operates on a first-come, first-served basis, but there are certain groups with priority enrollment (see below).

Priority Enrollment: certain academic groups may have limited options for their courses, therefore they have priority enrollment in certain classes. Students in Spanish levels LS 111-LS 212 can only choose from electives in English. Should the max enrollment be reached, students in the higher levels of Spanish (300+) will be asked to switch to an elective taught in Spanish. They may be added to a waitlist. The same applies to certain groups who have limited schedules (ENG, SCI programs): these students will have priority enrollment in those classes held during the afternoon.

Students in higher levels of Spanish are strongly encouraged to take most, if not all, of their electives in Spanish. They will be permitted to enroll in the English-language electives on a space-permitting basis.
