Modern Languages - BA, German Option

The BA in Modern Languages (MODL) supports and advances students' international and global competencies. Students can choose to major in French, German, or Russian. Courses are designed to offer students extended study of the languages, literatures, social histories, and cultures of these language communities. 

The careful combination of foreign language skills with other curricula enhances preparation for careers in industry, government, academia and the non-profit sectors. Teaching certification is available to majors through the School of Education and Human Development.

In addition to classes, the department offers summer study abroad programs for credit. Departmental faculty and advising staff also work closely with students to match their interests with semester and full-year programs abroad.

Students will be required to complete, by coursework or placement test, all 100- and 200-level courses in sequence. Once a student has received credit for a higher-level language course, the student is no longer eligible to receive credit for prerequisite courses.
