In addition to satisfying the entrance requirements for the College of Liberal Arts, prospective majors in the Department of Modern Languages must meet the following criteria:
Admission is determined by application to the academic unit offering the degree of interest. Individual departments and programs in the College of Liberal Arts may set more specific and restrictive requirements than those stipulated in the Core Curriculum statement (See Degree Program), and may set additional requirements for admission to the major. Information may be obtained in department and program offices.
The College of Liberal Arts has a modern and classical languages requirement. Students must demonstrate proficiency at the second year college level of a foreign or classical language. This requirement for the B.A. degree at UT Arlington is designed to help students become effective members of the global community. It is not only essential for a broad education, but also provides a basis for practical benefits to students with widely varying and highly specific objectives. Proficiency may be demonstrated through the prescribed score on the CLEP test for the language, transfer of credits from another institution, completion of the second year at UT Arlington, or proof of a secondary education in a foreign language (as evidenced by a diploma from a high school in which the language is the primary language of instruction). Students who choose to fulfill the requirement through proof of secondary education in another language must complete an additional six hours of English courses in order to ensure their mastery of English. Computer Use and Oral Communication Competencies
Students majoring in Liberal Art disciplines are also required to demonstrate computer use proficiency and oral communication competency. Methods for demonstrating these competencies vary across departments and programs within the College of Liberal Arts and are detailed in the sections of this catalog pertaining to the various majors. Transfer Credits
Students entering the College of Liberal Arts may transfer up to 72 hours of academic credit from two-year institutions to be applied to a degree.
Spanish, French, and German. Students with one year of background in the language they will study are strongly recommended to take an advanced placement examination for placement at the appropriate level. Students wishing to earn credit by examination for any of the first four (1441, 1442, 2313, 2314) levels of French, German, or Spanish must present an official score received on one of two nationally administered examinations recognized by the department:
Russian. Non-native speakers of Russian with previous exposure to the language, who intend to enroll in Russian courses at UT Arlington, may be eligible to take a placement test at the discretion of the department. Native or heritage speakers intending to major or minor in Russian must take the Russian placement test.
Arabic, Chinese, Korean, and Portuguese. Non-native speakers of Arabic, Chinese, Korean, or Portuguese with previous exposure to the language, who intend to enroll in courses in these languages at UT Arlington, may be eligible to take a placement test at the discretion of the department.
Placement tests for Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Portuguese, and Russian are administered on site in the Department of Modern Languages and not offered by The Testing Services Office. For more information, contact the Language Coordinators.
