What are the basic language proficiency requirements for the integrated degree programs?

There are different language proficiency requirements for native English speakers and non-native English speakers. If you are a native English speaker, you must complete two years of undergraduate coursework in one language. However, if you are studying Arabic, you must complete one year of undergraduate coursework for fall entry and one and a half years for spring entry.

During new student orientation, you will demonstrate your language abilities through a written and oral placement test. You must place into a 300-level course for all languages except Arabic. However, students who do not place into a 400-level language course may need more than two semesters to complete the language component of their Master's degree.
