The Modern Language Track can include Elementary and Intermediate-Level Language Courses/Proficiency and involves 0-12 hours of coursework.

At Ashland University, students are prepared to enter into a global society by the Global Passport Strategies which are part of the Core Curriculum.  One of three tracks of the GPS, the Modern Language Track, is completed by becoming proficient in one of the modern foreign languages offered at Ashland University. 

Students can study French, one of only two working languages used in the United Nations, or learn Spanish, the second-most studied language, and take part in a truly global conversation.

Students who choose this track are required to take 0-12 hours, depending on placement.

Other Global Passport Strategies tracks include Global Studies Track or Study Abroad Track.
