Language Requirement

Students are strongly advised to complete their foreign language requirement in a language relevant either to their national-linguistic tradition or to their disciplinary focus.

The language requirement is completed by satisfying any one of the following:

  • The student is a native speaker of a language other than English
  • The student has declared a language major (not English)
  • Three of the courses used to complete the Primary National-Linguistic Field were taught in the major.
  • Three 300-level (or higher) language courses in the same language (not English)

Students should fill in the Language section of the Major Progress Form indicating their plan to satisfy the Language Requirement. Questions regarding the language requirement should be directed to the Major Adviser.
