General Information on MCL Language Courses

Please note that due to necessary minimum enrollment policies it is possible that not all classes of any given sequence can be offered in direct succession; this is particularly true among less commonly taught languages such as Chinese, Korean, Portuguese and Russian.
- ANY language taught by MCL will fulfill a department foreign language requirement, as long as it is taken at the necessary level.
- As of Fall 2010, the Department of Modern & Classical Languages no longer grants credit by examination for intermediate competence (2001/2002) in languages that are not covered by the CLEP exam. All undergraduate students seeking to fulfill their foreign language requirements must choose from one of the options below. (For more information, please visit the Language Placement page.)
- As the title indicates, SPAN 1101 and 2101 are highly intensive and challenging language courses primarily designed for students who may be working toward a minor or major in one of the languages taught by MCL and/or those with prior experience in foreign language learning.
- No student, no matter what age, is exempt from a foreign language requirement unless a specific and definitive learning disability can be established by the Office of Disability Services. MCL cannot exempt any student from their language requirement, as these requirements are established by the University and/or the College of Arts & Sciences.
