1Spanish, French, German should be selected as a specialization within Modern Language (MLANG). Program results in a second major in the area of modern language chosen.

2This course must meet FYOC and FYDT designations for Eloquentia Perfecta.

3 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.

4Students who begin their major language at the 311 level will take 6 fewer credits in the major and 6 more credits in the cognate or free area. In their second year, they will choose advanced language electives.

5Students whose specialization within Modern Language is Spanish are required to take SPAN 320 , and SPAN 321  and three of the following: SPAN 313 , SPAN 314 , SPAN 330  and/or SPAN 331 . In Spanish, there is no Advanced Stylistics II.

6Before enrolling in EDUC 314 , students are required to pass a proficiency exam at the intermediate-high level.

77All undergraduate student teachers will be required to complete edTPA as part of the requirements for student teaching seminar. 

8All Secondary Education MLANG Majors are strongly encouraged to study abroad for a period of at least one semester.
