Our language plans offer you the opportunity to hone your oral and written linguistic skills and to gain greater exposure to the language and literature of another culture. In addition, these plans sharpen your critical thinking and analysis skills, as well as your understanding of your native language. All of our offerings enhance your preparation for graduate school and a wide variety of careers.
In these sections, we first explain placement exams and our rules about lower-division courses. Then we describe each of our academic plans individually. Finally, we explain our Spanish immersion program.
