Spanish 278 is intended for heritage speakers of Spanish and/or bilingual students wishing to improve their Spanish skills in formal writing and speaking.  The course is primarily designed for those who have experienced Spanish as their native language (or as one of their native languages) while growing up.

Note:  Spanish 277 and Spanish 278 are equivalent courses, and students who complete either Spanish 277 or Spanish 278 satisfy the prerequisite for the Spanish major or minor.

Students receiving Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) Spanish credit are allowed concurrent registration in Spanish 277 (or 278) and Spanish courses numbered 279-399, if they wish.  Students must contact rll.undergrad@umich.edu to request this concurrent registration.
