World Language Requirements (two or three course units)

Two courses in sequence in any of the modern languages are required if students opt for a language not previously studied in high school or another institution.

Alternatively, students continuing a foreign language previously taken in high school or at another institution must take three courses of that language in sequence. However, this requirement may be reduced by taking a placement test in that language. Based on the student’s performance on that test, 0, 1, 2, or 3 courses may be required.

Consult the department for details.

Note: Arabic 151 and 152: Chinese 151 and 152; Japanese 151 and 152; Persian 151 and 152; and Russian 151 and 152 are intensive courses and carry two course units of credit each. Students should take this into account when planning a normal four-course semester.
