Course Descriptions for the Modern Languages Program:
   - Chinese
   - Spanish

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, and 

writing modern languages other than English,

(2) to cultivate an appreciation for the culture and civilization of the people whose language is being studied, and

(3) 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, take the Spanish CLEP test for beginning Spanish, or take the SPAT [the Spanish Advising Tool] administered by the Spanish instructor.
