Core Curriculum Language Requirement
While core curriculum foreign language courses stress the four skills--reading, writing, listening and speaking--emphasis is put on oral/aural proficiency and effective interpersonal communication. The culture of the people who speak the target foreign language is also an important aspect of each course.
Courses in languages must be taken consecutively. That is, a course numbered 101 precedes and is prerequisite to 102; 102 is prerequisite to 201; and 201 is prerequisite to 202.
Graduation requirements in languages may be satisfied only by appropriate sequences of courses in the same language. Thus, French 101-102 must be followed by French 201-202 (not German or Spanish 201-202); and so forth.
