Modern Languages and Cultures Undergraduate Curricular Requirements

A maximum of 15 transfer credits and/or credits earned through study abroad may be applied toward the upper-division requirements for the B.A. degree in Foreign Language, French, and Spanish.

Students who receive a C or D in their first upper-division language class are required to pass an oral and written proficiency exam to meet minimum departmental proficiency standards before being allowed to register in other upper-division language classes.

A student must receive a C or better in an upper-division course in the appropriate target language to count towards the major.

Before going on a study abroad program, students must have the approval of their major advisor to ensure that their proposed program meets with departmental approval. Upon returning to UI, the Department of Modern Languages & Cultures will evaluate the students' oral and written proficiency and determine which classes studied abroad may count towards the major. Study abroad credits with the number 404 and University of Idaho credits with the number 449, 498, or 499 will not automatically count toward the Foreign Languages, French, or Spanish majors; they will be evaluated by a Modern Languages and Cultures advisor and may be used to complete the major only upon approval.
