Requirements for the liberal arts major in two modern languages, B.A. program


The requirement is a minimum of 18 credits (20 credits in German and Spanish) at the 300 and 400 levels in each of two languages. In French, German, Japanese, and Spanish, courses numbered 314, 316, 318, 355, 408 and 455 are required.

Three collateral courses are required: LIN 201  and two courses in history or civilization, one in each language area, to be approved by the student’s department adviser. LIT 181  and LIT 182  are recommended. When one of the languages is Japanese, LIT 100  with LIT 181  or LIT 182  are recommended. Students are strongly advised to complete a minor in a complementary field. Most traditional graduate programs in language and literature will require students in this major to fulfill additional prerequisites in literature. At least 16 credits of those required for the major in two modern languages must be taken at Oakland University.

Requirements for the modified liberal arts major in a modern language with majors or minors in economics, business, international management, engineering, computer science or computing, B.A. program


Modified majors are available in French, German, Japanese and Spanish with majors or minors in economics, general business, international management, engineering, computer science or computing. (Students with majors or minors in one of the other professional schools may petition the department for a modified major.) The requirement in French, Japanese or Spanish is a minimum of 24 credits at the 300-400 level; in German it is 28 credits. Students should note the credit hour restriction for the minors in economics or business. (Students interested in a five-year program leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in a modern language and a Master of Business Administration should consult the Oakland University Graduate Catalog.) At least 16 credits of those required for the modified liberal arts major in a modern language must be taken at Oakland University.
