Remarks FAILED - No research was found in favor of the resolution by the committee.
Whereas Current requirements for a Bachelor of Arts degree in the College of Liberal Arts currently include 4 semesters in one foreign language; and
Whereas Most students do not come anywhere close to achieving fluency in their chosen language after four semesters; and
Whereas It is in the scope of the Liberal Arts education process to include as broad an education as possible.
Be It Further Resolved That Candidates for a Bachelor of Arts degree in the College of Liberal Arts be allowed to take the first and second semesters of TWO DIFFERENT languages, rather than four semesters of one language; and
Be It Further Resolved That Students who wish to take the two upper-division courses can continue to do so; and
Be It Further Resolved That Should a student choose to take the 2-language option, the extra 2 credit hours gained (1311 & 1312 are four hour courses, 2313 & 2314 are 3 hour courses) will apply as optional credits, NOT electives, in terms of calculating the total number of credit hours gained at UTA; and
Be It Further Resolved That This resolution take effect immediately.
