Descriptions for the Modern Languages Program:
The College of Humanities and Social Sciences
also offers courses in Chinese and Spanish.
These courses have three basic objectives:
(1) to develop competence in understanding, speaking, reading,
writing modern languages other than English,
to cultivate an appreciation for the culture and civilization
of the people whose language is being studied, and
to provide guidance for students who are preparing for careers
in various language fields.
Advanced placement with academic credit will
be granted to superior students satisfactorily completing
the CEEB Advance Placement Examination in the 2000 level and
above. Foreign students whose native language is not English
may choose to take 12 additional hours in English in lieu
of the regular foreign language requirement. Students who
have had two or more years of Spanish in high school may apply for either AP credit for AP courses taken in high
school, or take a Spanish placement test [non-credit] administered by the Spanish Department.
