Combining Majors and Minors

 You are urged to consider combining a major or minor in a foreign language with a second field such as business, political science, pre-med, sociology, or international relations. Education majors should consider seeking teaching licensure in two languages.

English as a Second Language Program

This program is open only to students whose first language is not English and whose English proficiency is inadequate for pursuing regular academic work. Students are placed in the appropriate courses on the basis of an entrance examination in English. Students may leave the English program and register for courses in their major field of interest upon attaining a TOEFL score of 500 and/or receiving the recommendation of their instructor. No more than 15 quarter hours may be applied toward a degree.
