Foreign Language Placement
The foreign language placement test is required of students who have
previous experience with French, German, or Spanish and who plan to continue
studying one of these languages.
Core Curriculum Foreign Language Requirement
Goal 5 of CCU's Core Curriculum states that students must complete three
credit hours in a foreign language course at the 130 level or higher,
or they must take six credit hours of a foreign language in sequence.
The introductory level of all language courses is 110 followed by 120
and 130. The Department of World Languages and Culture also offers a 111 course in certain
languages that incorporates the 110 and 120 curriculums together in one
course. Languages offered at CCU are: French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.
Starting a New Language
Students who wish to start a new language they have never studied should
register for an introductory level 110 course.
