The Modern Language Option is available to all BA students who wish to study a modern language beyond the level necessary to meet the college’s modern language requirement and to BS students who wish to study a Modern Language at any level. Students selecting the option may substitute a three-course language sequence for two domain courses and one open elective. Students may use the Modern Language Option by applying two of the modern language courses toward two different learning domain combinations. Here are the available combinations: Philosophical Inquiry or Religious Dimensions; Understanding the Past or Self, Society, and the Modern World; or Arts and Literature or Scientific Inquiry (cannot substitute for the lab science or science as a way of knowing requirement.). Students majoring in one modern language may use the Modern Language Option for study of a second language at the intermediate level or above. Please see your advisor for additional information about Modern Language Option course placement.
