Special Notes for Modern Language Majors and Minors

  1. There are clear advantages to preparation in more than one modern language for students, particularly those intending to seek teaching certification. Interested students are encouraged to consult with the Chair of the Modern Languages Department at an early state of their program to learn about possibilities for flexibility in earning graduation credits within one area of concentration.
  2. The Department of Modern Languages requires a minimum grade of 2.0 in all courses counted toward the major and the minor.
  3. The Department encourages language majors to seriously consider taking a term or year of study abroad. Immersion in another language and culture intensifies learning. Many such opportunities are available to non-majors and majors.
