Dr. Alicia Arribas advises Spanish majors from their 2nd year, Ms. Kate Daley-Bailey advises French, Italian, Portuguese and Romance Languages and some Spanish majors from their 2nd year, and Dr. David Latimer advises Spanish study abroad students. In order to make an appointment for advising, please schedule an appointment with your advisor in SAGE.
Discuss your decision with your undergraduate advisor. Students may now declare a major or minor through Athena. No departmental forms are necessary. To declare a major or minor in Spanish, French, Portuguese, or Italian, please log in to Athena and follow the directions listed in here.
How do I take a placement test?
Tests are administered in Clarke Howell Hall from 8:30 to 3:00. The Foreign Languages advisers do not receive test results. Check University Testing Services of UGA for more information.
What do I need to do when it's close to graduation time?
For the procedures in the College, go to the Franklin College Academic Services web site. In the Department, you must see your undergraduate advisor who will give you the forms for outcome assessment. These forms must be completed before your advisor will complete the graduation checklist required by the College.
How do I obtain a minor completion form?
To declare a minor in Spanish, French, Portuguese, or Italian, please log in to Athena and follow the directions listed in this link.
Review the information on our study abroad programs sponsored by the Department of Romance Languages on this website and meet with one of the undergraduate advisors in the department to discuss your interests. Plan to attend the Study Abroad Fair that is held in October.
Talk to an advisor in the Office of Global Engagement. That office has information about programs and will advise you about transferring credit. You will need to obtain a Credit Approval Form from that office or online.
Should I double major in two languages or major in Romance Languages?
A Romance Languages major enables you to have a major concentration in Italian or Portuguese. It also gives you the flexibility to study more than one language. However, a double major in most cases only requires four more courses and is needed if you plan to teach in high school or apply for graduate school in that language.
Who should I see if I have a problem getting into a course or if courses needed for graduation are not available?
Drop-Add is conducted entirely online. Consult Athena for availability of classes.
