Graduate requirements for foreign language study vary by program. In some cases, an
allied area of study that is approved in advance by the Director of Graduate Studies
may be substituted for a foreign language. Please consult your degree requirements.
All decisions regarding how to fulfill these requirements must be made in consultation
with your advisor and approved by the Director of Graduate Studies. Students seeking
to demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language may do so in the following ways:
- By having completed twelve undergraduate hours in a foreign language, culminating
in 202 or its equivalent, with a B average or higher, within six years of beginning
- By retaking 202 and earning a B or higher if you have completed twelve undergraduate
hours in a foreign language, culminating in 202 or its equivalent, with a B average
or higher, and this coursework was completed outside of the six year window stated
- By completing a six-hour graduate sequence in reading knowledge of a foreign language
(501-502) with a B average or higher.
- By passing the CLEP test. (See your Graduate Bulletin for details.)
