Basic Languages

The Department of Foreign Languages offers elementary and intermediate French, Spanish, Portuguese and Latin.

Even some knowledge of a modern foreign language can benefit you and your future career. Study through the intermediate level in our proficiency-based program will help you develop skills that will allow you to communicate effectively with native speakers and gives you a base for continued development later. The study of a language at any level is one of the best ways to make yourself more global and marketable in the future in any field.

Basic languages courses can also help you fulfill the institutional GPS (Global Passport Studies) requirement. If you complete an Intermediate II language course, you have completed the requirement. Or you can include a value-added course in a language you have already studied or two courses in a language not previously studied among your GPS choices.  Language study, including basic language, may also help you prepare for study abroad. See the Placement page for information on placement into a course at an appropriate level for you.

You are not as competitive in English only. Enroll in your language class today.

All languages classes are three credit hours. Typically Elementary and Intermediate I are offered in the fall and Elementary and Intermediate II are offered in the spring. Check course offerings for complete and current course offerings.
