Understanding the Modern Language Option

The Modern Language Option is available to all BA students who wish to study a modern language beyond the level necessary to meet their College’s language requirement and to B.S. students who wish to study a modern language at any level. Students selecting the option may substitute a three-course language sequence for two domain courses and one open elective. Students majoring in one modern language may use the Modern Language Option for study of a second language at the intermediate level or above.

MLO substitutions may not be used to replace the Scientific Inquiry - Lab or Scientific Inquiry - Science as a Way of Knowing requirement. Any substitutions must be consistent with the principle that students complete at least one course in each learning domain.

NOTE: Please contact your college/school regarding additional information and restrictions about the Modern Language Option.
