This course examines language variation (dialectal, social, historical) in Spanish-speaking communities. During the first portion of the term, students are introduced to the theoretical and methodological foundations of sociolinguistic variation. The second portion of the term focuses on dialectal and social variation across the Spanish-speaking world, and its many geolinguistic varieties. Finally, students will spend the last portion of the term gaining firsthand experience in sociolinguistic research and data analysis practices. Students will apply their knowledge of course content in data analysis activities, exams, and a final research paper.

This course counts as elective credit toward the Spanish minor.
