Spanish Transfer Plan

Credit from other institutions transfers to UL Lafayette, but if you are a transfer student you should see an advisor in Spanish as soon as you can. They will determine how your transfer credit can best be applied here and help you decide what course or courses you should begin with here.

We also recommend that transfer students join Spanish Club and if possible, the honor society Sigma Delta Pi, to connect with other students and meet informally with faculty.

To begin the process of transferring to the Spanish major, contact Richard Winters at You'll be assigned an official advisor after you enroll.

Fabrice Leroy, Le Bouquin de la bande dessinée

Professor Fabrice Leroy contributed two lengthy chapters to Le Bouquin de la bande dessinée: Dictionnaire esthétique et thématique, edited by Thierry Groensteen, the leading French expert on comics and graphic novels. Published by Robert Laffont Editions in Paris in collaboration with the Cité Internationale de la Bande Dessinée et de l'Image, this 928-page reference work contains in-depth essays from over 40 international scholars who examined a variety of comics-related notions, including historical movements, publishing trends, subgenres, aesthetic and formal devices, themes, and correlations with cultural history. Each entry of this volume is illustrated by an original drawing from renowned French cartoonist Lewis Trondheim. This publication is a flagship event of the French Ministry of Culture’s “Année de la Bande Dessinée,” which coordinates various museum and library exhibitions, as well as festivals across France, in a celebration of comics as an art form (January 2020-June 2021). Fabrice Leroy’s contributions to this volume are devoted to detective fiction (“Polar”) and to the depiction of everyday life in graphic novels (“Quotidien”).
