Tips for Success
Don’t Wait, Get an Early Start with Language Learning
Become more fluent
If you’ve taken a foreign language before, continue it immediately with us. The sooner you begin, the more time you’ll have to master the language.
Earn a minor or second major
Test out of classes
Don’t start your learning from scratch. If you’ve taken French, Spanish, or German, take our placement test to find the right starting place. Our generous advanced placement policy can earn you up to 8 credit hours for classes that you skip!
Increase your scholarship chances
If you’re a first-year student who places into the second or third year, you’re more competitive for our Young Scholars Award.
Enhance your study abroad experience
Immersing yourself in another culture is easier and more exciting when you can speak the language. Make the most out of your study abroad experience by going the extra mile.
Complement your other studies
Foreign language study will make you a better English speaker and a better problem solver. Our students find greater opportunities in government, business, medicine, and beyond thanks to our classes.
