2015-2016 Undergraduate/Graduate Catalog

Skill Area III. Foreign Language Proficiency

The University language requirement can be satisfied in any one of the following ways:
  1. Three sequential years of one foreign language at the high-school level.
  2. Elementary proficiency as demonstrated by successfully completing a second-semester level CCSU foreign-language course (112 or 118). Students with no previous background in a language must take the first and second semesters (111 and 112, or 118); students who place out of 111 due to previous background in the language may satisfy the requirement by taking 112 only.
  3. Passing the CLEP, a standardized examination which demonstrates knowledge of a foreign language equivalent to completion of a second-semester course or higher.
  4. Successful completion of a foreign-language course at a level higher than the second- semester level.
  5. Demonstration of native proficiency in a language other than English (requires evaluation of skill level by an appropriate faculty member and/or official documentation, and approval by the Chair of the Department of Modern Languages).
