Foreign Language/Foreign Culture Requirement
All students seeking the baccalaureate degree must satisfy the foreign language/foreign culture requirement. The goal of this requirement is to develop an understanding of foreign countries or regions. The requirement can be met in one of four ways:
Demonstrating competency at the 102-level in a foreign language by achieving a score on the foreign language placement test that qualifies the student to enter the 201-level course in a foreign language or completing a 102-level foreign language course (or AIS 112 or CSD 103) with a grade of C (not C-) or above, or mark of S (Satisfactory). NOTE: The International Business minor requires foreign language competence at the 201 level.
- Earning credit (and maintaining good academic standing) in either a full semester of study abroad or approved internship abroad, or incrementally through a combination of short term study abroad and courses designated as fulfilling the foreign culture requirement.
- Earning a minimum of nine credits of Foreign Culture courses. Business courses that satisfy this requirement are Mgmt/Intb 345 and Mktg/Intb 335.
- Earning credit in a 101- or 102-level foreign language course (or a course from AIS 111, 112; CSD 101, 102, 103); AND earning at least six credits in foreign culture courses.
Students who are not native speakers of English may satisfy this requirement by completing the English competency requirement for the baccalaureate degree and demonstrating competency in their native language.
