Chart your Language Pathway.
If you have taken a language in high school, or learned one at home, explore our Pathways into
Modern Languages Programs to earn a Language Minor in under one year or a Language Major
in two to three years. Through Avant Language Assessment or the Global Seal of Biliteracy you
can receive up to 14 college credit hours when you take a course at UTA at the next level in the
language you tested.*
Please see sample pathway into Chinese minor, but minors for other languages work similarly.
Choose from the following languages: American Sign Language, Arabic, Chinese, French,
German, Korean, Russian, or Spanish.
Take the Avant exam before the first day of classes if you are admitted to UTA before the
fall/spring semesters begin.
For late registration, students must take the Avant exam no later than the second day of classes.

*Testing fees apply. AP, IB, and CLEP options are also available.
