Additional Programs

Interdisciplinary Majors and Minors (formerly Concentrations)

Core Courses and the Language Requirement

Students must complete the 201 level or equivalent (beginning intermediate level) if they continue with the same language that they studied in high school. Those who place above this level (201), as determined by a proctored placement test given on campus, may request a waiver of the core language requirement. If students choose to start a brand new language rather than continue with their previously studied language, they must complete a two course sequence (101-102).

Other core requirements may be met with approved literature or culture courses taught in the department, offered either in the original language or in English (CL for classical studies and IC for modern languages).

Teaching Licensure

Students seeking a licensure for teaching world languages should contact the JCU Department of Education and Allied Studies as soon as possible in their academic program to explore their options.
