Language Requirement

Requirements for Master of Arts and Master of Science Students 

A reading knowledge of one modern foreign language (Germanic, Romance or Slavic) is required by some programs for the Master of Science and Master of Arts degrees. Other programs may designate that the language requirement be filled from among those languages in which the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures conducts testing. Students should contact the major program for specific language requirements. 

Master's Degrees in Designated Fields 

There is no language requirement in the professional master's degree programs (master's degrees in designated fields) with the exception of the Master's of International Studies, which requires knowledge of one foreign language at a level of conversational proficiency.
