Credit for Prior Learning

Once a student enrolls in and successfully completes a language course beyond the 101 level with a grade of C- or higher, he or she may petition to receive credit for all courses prerequisite to the level successfully completed.  For example, a student who successfully completes ARABIC 102 may receive credit for ARABIC 101. For those with native language proficiency, please see how to obtain credit for your language experience through the detailed explanation of Challenge Exams and Credit for Prior Learning.

World Languages Resource Center

Located next to the department offices in the Library, Room L-144, students studying a world language have access to state-of-the art equipment in the World Languages Resource Center. Whether taking a study break in between classes or completing a research project, the Center is dedicated to providing tools and services to language students. A computer lab provides access to authentic resources such as online journals and newspapers from around the world, specialized software and recording tools. The Center also hosts a collection of more than 1,200 films for student checkout, along with mobile tablets for use in and out of the classroom.

Most 100- and 200- level language courses require lab participation such as video, conversation, and computer activities in the Language Resource Center, for which students pay an additional laboratory fee.
