Foreign Language Requirement

The College of Graduate Studies has no requirement for a language other than English for the master's degree. Individual academic units may establish, with approval of the Faculty Senate Graduate Committee, language requirements for their degree programs and may define the level of competence needed to satisfy those requirements. A grade of "C" or better in the fourth level course of an approved foreign language or passing a foreign language examination administered by the Georgia Southern University Department of World Languages and Cultures will satisfy the foreign language requirement unless otherwise stated by the individual program policy. The foreign language must be approved by the student's advisor. Neither English nor the student's native language (if other than English) may be counted to meet the Foreign Language requirement.
