Foreign Language/Foreign Culture Requirement
The foreign language/foreign culture requirement seeks to develop in students an understanding of the cultural, social, religious, intellectual, and philosophical aspects of foreign countries. This 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. The incremental value of a short term study abroad program is available in the Center for International Education, Schofield 3.
earning a minimum of nine credits of Foreign Culture courses. Business courses that satisfy this requirement are Mgmt 345 and Mktg 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.
