World Language Requirement

To fulfill the requirement for the Bachelor of Arts degree, students will normally complete twelve semester hours in the same world language. With special permission, students may complete the requirement in two different world languages. Bachelor of music in vocal performance majors take any 6 hours plus diction courses. Others may take one year of a modern language and one year of a biblical language if permission is granted. Students entering with advanced placement or CLEP credit hours, high school credits, or foreign language experience outside the classroom may fulfill the language requirement by completing any world language course numbered 202 or above. This does not apply to courses in Hebrew or Greek as foreign languages or to courses in the world languages numbered 297, 298, 397, 398, 497, and 498 except when courses so numbered carry at least three hours credit. CLEP hours in a foreign language may be counted only to satisfy the language requirement.
