The Modern Language Option (MLO) is available to any student in the Liberal Studies Program of any College major who studies a modern language beyond the level necessary to meet the College’s Modern Language Requirement (MLR). Students selecting the MLO may substitute two courses of a three-course language sequence for two Learning Domain requirements. For the first modern language the sequence must be at the intermediate level or higher; for a second modern language it can be at the beginning level. Students may use the MLO according to the following combinations of Learning Domains: Philosophical Inquiry OR Religious Dimensions; Understanding the Past OR Self, Society, and the Modern World; Arts and Literature OR Scientific Inquiry (cannot substitute for the lab science requirement.) Students should seek assistance from an academic advisor about proper initial modern language placement before discussing the MLR and MLO.
