Several of the foreign language and literature departments (AMESALL, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish) award a certificate in foreign language proficiency and/or translation based on demonstrated ability to comprehend, speak, read, and write the foreign language. The usual requirement is a grade of B or better in 6 credits of work taken in courses at or above the 300 level conducted entirely in the foreign language. Individual departments may specify particular courses or examinations to be completed in demonstrating this standard. For further information, consult the appropriate foreign language department.
Note: The foreign language proficiency certificates are awarded only with or subsequent to the awarding of a baccalaureate degree in an approved major.
