Sara J. Brenneis (Section 01)


The senior seminar is offered every fall semester and fulfills the capstone requirement. It is designed for Spanish majors to reflect, integrate, and apply what they have learned and accomplished in the major. At the beginning of the semester, students will prepare a portfolio of work created throughout the major, including during their study abroad experience, to share and discuss with classmates. The rest of the semester will be devoted to individual or collaborative projects. Projects can take a variety of forms, including but not limited to a performance, a service learning project, an internship, a thesis, or an exhibit. Students writing a thesis may designate their thesis as their individual project. In all cases, students will report on their projects in writing as well as in person with classmates and in a public forum. Conducted in Spanish.

For F20, students will tailor their individual projects and presentations to a digital environment. A remote community service project will also be available as one option for the capstone. Instruction will be online and synchronous via Zoom with the possibility of in-person meetings and small group discussion with the professor for those students on campus.

Open only to senior majors. Fall Semester. Professor Brenneis
