Languages: Department of Modern and Classical Languages & Literatures (Lang)

http://www.arts-sciences.und.edu/languages

Benoit, Berne, Berry, Boyd, DuBois, Fleshman, Gjellstad, Knapp, Maury, Mosher, Ross, Routon and Worley

The Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures offers study in Chinese, French, German, Latin, Norwegian, Russian, and Spanish. See IS 250 Lakota Language I and IS 251 Lakota Languages II for study of Native American languages of North Dakota. Majors are offered in Chinese, Classical Studies, French, German, Norwegian, or Spanish. Minors are offered in Chinese Studies, Classical Studies, French, German, Norwegian, Russian, and Spanish.

Coursework is divided into Lower and Upper Divisions. Lower division courses introduce students to languages and cultures. They also satisfy general education requirements, as do select upper division courses. Upper division courses focus on literary, linguistic, theoretical and cultural studies and are taught in the target languages unless otherwise indicated.

The Department encourages international study through departmentally approved programs. It is recommended that students who are seeking credit for previous foreign study take the placement test. It also recommends students for various awards for superior academic performance, especially the Arneberg and the Larsen Foreign Travel Scholarships.

Foreign Language Placement & Credit Test

Students with a background in a foreign language which is currently taught in the Languages Department at UND may receive credit by taking a test in that language through the Languages Department. It is strongly recommended that students take this test during pre-registration or registration. Students who take it later than the end of their first semester in residence will need to see the Language Lab Director for the appropriate petition form, and will need to petition to establish eligibility. Students who are enrolled in a language course and wish to take the Foreign Language Placement & Credit Test in that language must take it during the first two weeks of the semester.

Credits earned through the Foreign Language Placement & Credit Test do not satisfy the World Cultures Essential Studies Requirement. See University ES listing.

Credit earned through College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests may be recognized by UND. See CLEP listing.

Students who have completed French, German, Latin, or Spanish Advanced Placement (AP) courses with appropriate scores may also receive credit. This credit is normally equivalent to Levels I and II in that language. See Advanced Placement listing.

Native speakers of a language other than English who wish to take classes in that language may enroll without special permission in any 400-level course, or in any 300-level course which emphasizes literary or cultural topics. Native speakers must obtain the permission of the department, however, to enroll in any 300-level course which emphasizes language instruction, or in any lower-division course. Incoming students whose native language (as indicated on their TOEFL exam) is one offered at UND should consult the Director of the Language Laboratory (M-306) about automatic waiver of the language placement examination.
