II. College of Arts and Sciences Requirements

  • Modern Languages 1150, 1250, 1350, or equivalent (15)


All students with a major in the College of Arts and Sciences must demonstrate competency through the level of 1350 in a language other than English. This competency is ordinarily achieved by successful completion of the three-course sequence: 1150, 1250, and 1350. Because these courses are a college requirement, no course in the sequence may be taken on a pass/fail, correspondence, or audit basis. Placement into other than the beginning course of the sequence is achieved by acceptable performance on the Modern Language Competency Examination. See the Modern Languages and Cultures Department for details on the examinations. Courses used to satisfy the College of Arts and Sciences modern language requirement may not be used to fulfill major requirements.


* Students performing required recitals in their junior or senior years must gain permission to give a recital in two stages: 1) the applied lesson professor grants permission to perform a recital following the most recent jury and 2) a recital evaluation committee reviews the student’s progress (Pre-Recital Jury) no later than four weeks prior to the recital date and grants final permission. The initial permission is sufficient for the student to schedule a recital date with the Director of Chamber and Instrumental Music. Absent permission from the recital evaluation committee, the scheduled recital will be cancelled and postponed to a later date.
