Course Calendar

An attractive feature of the program is the fact that all of the required graduate-level courses can be taken during three summer sessions; the academic year course load will be relatively light and thus students will be able to finish the courses within a 26-month time span while maintaining full time employment. Students from out of the area may take elective courses during the academic year at other institutions with approval of the graduate advisor.

All required graduate-level courses will be offered on the Sonoma State campus in Rohnert Park during the months of June and July.

Fall and Spring Courses

The following two courses are available at Sonoma State University each Fall and Spring semester. Registration is via paper form only; see the MA Spanish registration page for forms and instructions.

Summer 2019 Courses

Summer Registration will begin in the middle of March via the paper PDF form available on the MA Spanish registration page.
