B.A. Language Requirements
Second language requirement
Proficiency through the third term (second semester) of the second year (usually 24 credit hours) of college work, or the equivalent, in a second language.
Proficiency is demonstrated by achieving a C- or better in 203 (the last course in second year
language study). Students who do not meet this standard, including transfer students from accredited and unaccredited U.S. institutions,
can show proficiency by passing the departmental proficiency exam with 80 percent. Native speakers who have attended
high school in their own language may not use that language to fulfill this requirement.
International students whose first language is not English must provide high school or college transcripts as evidence of formal
training in the native language and a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score
of at least 500 (paper based) or a score of at least 61 (internet-based) or a IELTS score of at least 5.0 to the International Education
and Development Office. International students must also meet all special graduation requirements related to writing intensive coursework.
