Modern Language Option

​The Modern Language Option (MLO) is available to all students following the Liberal Studies Program who wish to study a modern language beyond the level necessary to meet the College’s modern language requirement. Students selecting the MLO may substitute a three-course language sequence for two Learning Domain courses and one open elective, or two upper-level courses in the same language for two Learning Domain requirements. Students majoring in one modern language may use the MLO for study of a second language at the intermediate level or above.

MLO substitutions may not be used to replace the Scientific Inquiry - Lab or Scientific Inquiry - Science as a Way of Knowing requirement. Any substitutions must be consistent with the principle that students complete at least one course in each Learning Domain.
