Opinion: Email to the office in charge of Baruch College about taking Spanish 1 and 2. September 4, 2023.


Greetings Baruch College,

I wanted to quickly mention something.

I’m taking Spanish 1 – SPA 1001 this semester, Fall 2023, at Baruch College. 

The rule is a student isn’t allowed to take Spanish if they took Spanish for two years in high school.

I took two years of Spanish in high school. 

I graduated high school in 1994. 

I contacted the Chair of the Language Department and the Deputy Chair of the Spanish Department. 

They said it was OK for me to take Spanish 1 and 2 at Baruch College to meet my language requirement for graduation because I took Spanish in high school so long ago (the 1990s). 

I wanted to mention it to you to make sure it’s OK if I take Spanish to complete my language requirement.  

I assume if the language department said it’s OK for me to take Spanish 1 and 2, then it’s OK. 

I’m mentioning it here just to be extra careful and avoid any mishaps that would stop me from graduating. 

Please advise. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Mark Pine
