Language Requirement for Specialists

For the Language Requirement, you may study any non-Germanic, non-Romance language that has an oral language component, and is not your first language.

This rules out the classical languages like:

  • Ancient Greek, Latin, and Biblical Hebrew, as well as French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Romanian (all Romance)
  • German, Dutch, and Scandinavian languages (all Germanic)

You can take any Asian, East Indian, Indigenous, African, Slavic, Celtic, Semitic, or Uralic language.

Courses must be approved by the Associate Chair, Undergraduate.  Please email when this coursework is complete and grades are posted for 2.0 FCE of language courses.  It's fine to check ahead of time about whether certain courses satisfy the requirement!
