College of Communication Core Requirements

One course designated Communication and Culture from the list below:

Foreign Language Requirement

Students in the College of Communication must demonstrate competence in a foreign language by earning at least 6 hours of credit in one foreign language at the 200 level or above. Foreign language courses are offered at the 100 level for students in need of preparation for more advanced study. Although 100-level courses do not satisfy the foreign language requirement, they do count as credit hours toward the degree. All first-year students must take a placement examination. Further information is available in the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. American Sign Language (ASL) also fulfills the language requirement. Students should contact the Communication Sciences and Disorders Program for more information about ASL.
