Language Reading Examination

Candidates must pass a foreign language reading proficiency examination as part of their program requirements. Any language other than English is acceptable.

Students who pass either the sequence of French 301 and French 302, or German 331 and German 332 fulfill the language requirement in lieu of the language exam, as per Graduate School policy. Graduate students do not receive graduate credit for these courses. The courses are open to all graduate students regardless of previous foreign language experience.
