Two Modern Languages, B.A.

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

The requirement is a minimum of 20 credits at the 3000 and 4000 levels in each of two languages. The following courses are required in the given languages, with other courses chosen as electives:

French - FRH 3140  and FRH 3180  
German - GRM 3140  and GRM 3160 /GRM 3180  
Japanese - JPN 3140  and JPN 3180  
Spanish - SPN 3140  and SPN 3170  

Three collateral courses are required: LIN 2201  and two courses in history or civilization, one in each language area, to be approved by the student’s department adviser. LIT 1810  and LIT 1820  are recommended. When one of the languages is Japanese, LIT 1000  with LIT 1810  or LIT 1820  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.

Additional Information

In addition to these major requirements, students must complete the Oakland University General Education Requirements , the College of Arts and Sciences College Exploratory Requirement , and an appropriate number of free elective classes to meet the overall credit requirement for the degree (in most cases 124; some degrees may require a greater number).

As a general rule, no more than eight credits of coursework used to satisfy one major, minor or concentration may be applied toward another, but exceptions to this rule may be allowed with the written approval of the program coordinators.

Regression Policy

Students will not receive credit for a lower sequence course after successful completion of a more advanced level course. For example, students will not receive credit for FRH 1140 (or transfer course equivalent) if taken after successful completion of FRH 1150.
