The Major

The Romance Languages Program is intended for students who want to specialize in two of the Romance languages offered in SLLC: French, Italian, and Spanish. Students selecting this major take a total of 45 credits selected from courses in two of the three components. The first four courses listed under each group are required for that particular language component; exceptions or substitutions may be made with the approval of the departmental language advisor only, in consultation with the Romance Languages advisor. 21 credits are taken in each of the two languages, as specified, and three additional credits are taken at the 400 level in either of the languages chosen. Literature or civilization courses may not be taken in translation. Students who wish to apply for Teacher's Certification should consult the College of Education.
