Page 93

A dual baccalaureate degree or double major or minor mav encompass a
discipline outside as well as within the college but should be selected only
with advisor approval. As a general principle, there is considerable latitude
in course choice tor Humanities and Social Sciences majors. The intermedi-
ate-level foreign language requirement (description follow si applies without
exception to all Humanities and Social Sciences four-year degree programs

College Foreign Language Requirements

Students in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences must demonstrate
an intermediate level of foreign language proficiency as a college require-
ment for graduation. They may choose any of the languages offered,
including self-instruction in the Critical Languages, described below.
Intermediate-level foreign language courses in French. German, Italian, and
Spanish will also count as Liberal Studies electives.

For students with previous foreign language instruction or experience, indi-
vidual placement into foreign language courses may be done during place-
ment testing and registration prior to the first semester at IUP. Students
whose placement test demonstrates competence equivalent to the inter-
mediate level are considered to have fulfilled the foreign language require-
ment Students with no previous foreign language background will take
entry-level courses, which may be counted as free electives in the total
required for graduation.

Any foreign student, registered as such at IUP. whose acquired native lan-
guage is other than English and who demonstrates an acceptable proficiency
in English, is exempt from the foreign language requirement if the depart-
ment of the student's major does not require a specific foreign language.

Critical Languages Program

The Critical Languages program is a self-instructional/tutorial approach to
less commonly taught foreign languages. Students meet with a tutor three
hours per week in addition to practicing with audiocassettes. Most tutors are
native speakers of the language. Professional teachers of the specific
language may be brought in from other universities to evaluate student
performance. The final grade is based on final examination as well as on
performance during the tutorial sessions. Interested students must contact
the coordinator before registration. Each course carries 3 credits.

The following languages may be available for study: Arabic, Chinese, Dutch.
Finnish. Modem Greek. Hebrew, Hindi. Hungarian, Japanese, Korean,
Portuguese. Russian, Swahili, and Swedish.
