Foreign Languages Requirements

French and Spanish majors must take written and oral proficiency examinations in their respective language before completion of the first semester of their senior year. Successful completion of the senior year examination is a prerequisite for graduation. Majors must pass the writing proficiency examination.

Students will not receive degree credit for the foreign language courses numbered 100 in any language without completion of a course numbered 101 or higher in that language, unless they have successfully completed two sequential courses in another language. If a student's major requires six or more hours of language, these hours must be taken in the same language.

Credit Examination 

Students may earn credit (maximum six semester hours) for beginning foreign language classes (100 level), by passing credit examinations. Students with two or more years of high school credit and native speakers should consult the department chairperson prior to registration.
