Modern Languages Suggested Chronology

For the Modern Languages major, specific courses are not required; rather, courses at specific levels are required.  To complete the major, students must take or place out of the basic language sequence (1001, 1002, 2001, 2002) and complete eight upper-division courses in the language ("FL" represents any of ARAB, CHIN, FREN, GRMN, JAPN, LATN, OR SPAN).  This suggested chronology is designed as a guide for students planning their course selections.  Actual course selections should be made with the advice of an academic advisor.

Study Abroad is strongly encouraged for Modern Languages majors and for all Georgia Southern students. For information, visit the Department of Foreign Languages or the Office of International Programs and Services.
