Professor Felicia Sturzer, Acting Head
The department offers the B.A. degree in Foreign Languages with concentrations in French, Greek and Latin, Latin, and Spanish. A student may also pursue a B.A. in Humanities degree with an emphasis in classical civilization. Elementary and intermediate German, Italian, and Portuguese are offered and may be chosen to fulfill the foreign language requirement. Modern language courses, taught in English, which deal with foreign literatures and civilizations, afford the non-foreign language student a broader perspective of other peoples and cultures.
The department also offers minor programs in Latin, Greek, Classics, Spanish, or French.
A native speaker of a language which is offered for credit by the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures or anyone with native speaker proficiency in such a language must consult the department for proper placement and approval to enroll.
Independent studies will be offered only for 400-level courses, with the exception of courses in German and the Classical languages, which will be taught at any level in this format only upon availability of staff and mutual consent of student and instructor.
All incoming students who have three years or more of high school study in a single foreign language (and no college level study of the language) and who wish to continue study in that language will be required to take a placement test to determine their level of competence in that language. A student should begin study of the language in question at the level established by the placement level. Under special circumstances, exceptions may be granted upon appeal to the department.
