Foreign Languages (3-9 hours)
Students will find the language requirement for their particular major listed in the catalog at the beginning of the degree requirements. Click on Programs of Study for additional information. Requirements vary by degree.
For traditional academic tracks, students are required to take (3-9 hours):
a) through Foreign Language (FL) 201 Intermediate I, (incorporating Spanish, French, or other languages offered; eg, SPAN 201, FREN 201) if a student starts with no advanced placement or places into 110, 120, or 201, earning a minimum of 3 hours but not to exceed 9 hours;
b) through FL 202 (Intermediate II) if the student places higher than FL 201. If a student places higher than 202, the student has completed her/his required FL credit. Note that this placement does not count toward the required 125 hours (may vary according to degree) required of all CSU students.
c) Through CHST 122 (Introd Hebrew II) or through CHST 132 (Elementary Koine Greek II).
For pre-professional tracks (3 hours):
Choose any one language class, from 110-202 depending on placement testing.
For Music majors (3 hours):
MUSI 241 meets this requirement.
For Speakers of Languages Other Than English (hours will vary):
Students designated as Non-Native English speakers (including but not limited to those required to have TOEFL scores) are subject to the following changes to LAC requirements for foreign languages:
a) Designated non-native English speaking students may not receive credit toward the core requirement in Foreign Language classes in their native languages (typically Spanish, but other courses are being offered by the university as well).
b) These designated students may receive LAC credit for coursework in Foreign Language classes other than their native language.
c) Designated non-native English speaking students may replace the Foreign Language requirement with additional coursework beyond the current core requirement in English (ENGL 202, 203, 204), Art (Art 202), World Literature (WRLD 213), History (HIST 211 or 212) or Theater (THEA 211) classes.
d) The minimum number of credits for graduation remains the same.
