How To…

… Get started with HISP at UMW?

First, glad you’re joining us! Getting started with HISP is going to look different depending on whether you’re hoping to graduate in 4, 3, or 2 years. You should look at the major requirements. That said, HISP 100 and HISP 105 are always the place to start. They are taught every semester, so you should be able to register easily. Having trouble? Contact the HISP Chair.

… Learn about the HISP Major?

You’ve come to the right place! This website is a great place to start. You should take a look at course requirements and the student handbook. Then, come find one of the HISP profs, we’d be glad to tell you all about it.

… Declare the HISP Major?

To declare the HISP major, you’ll need the Major Declaration Form (it’s on the Registrar’s page.) You’ll then make an appointment with the HISP Chair, Prof. Spencer (mspen1bi@umw.edu) to discuss the major and sign the form. Then it goes back to the Registrar. That’s it!
