Placement of Entering Freshmen

Courses at the 100-level (elementary) are for those who are beginning the study of a particular language.

A student with previous language study may not register for 131 in the same language without special permission. A student with one year of a language in high school should register for 132 of the same language in the St. Cloud State University program; with two years in high school for 132 or 133, three years in high school for 133 or 211, and four years in high school, 211, 212, 213/243, or 311. Changes may be made on the basis of individual competence. Students with any previous study are advised to consult foreign languages faculty regarding appropriate placement. Foreign language courses at the 100- and 200-level are designed for non-native speakers of the language. Native speakers may take these courses for credits ONLY with the permission of the foreign languages and literature department.

All major and minor credits must be earned at the 200-level or above. All students who intend to major or minor in a foreign language which they have not previously studied in high school should note the following:

  1. For a B.S. degree in secondary or elementary education, with a foreign language major or minor, 100-level language courses must be started in the fall quarter (or winter quarter, when offered) of the freshman year.
  2. For a B.A. degree with a major in a foreign language, 100-level courses must be started in the fall quarter (or winter quarter, when offered) of the freshman year.

The requirements for these degrees are outlined below. All upper-division courses are conducted in the foreign language, unless they are marked as courses in translation.

Bachelor of Science programs are for those who are preparing to teach a foreign language in elementary or secondary school.

The minimum number of credits listed for each foreign language major/minor program applies only when a student begins college-level study of that language at the 300-level or above; 200-level course credits included in the major/minor program result in a proportionately larger total, up to the maximum listed.
