All students completing a Bachelor of Arts degree are required to attain proficiency in a foreign language. Proficiency may be satisfied by completing a language class at the 103 (intermediate) level or three years of any one foreign language in high school. Students may also meet this requirement through AP or CLEP testing.


Students must earn a C or better in each required core course.

In addition to the required core, students need to take courses in four applied competency areas. To meet this requirement students need between 9 and 15 credits; the number of credits depends on whether a course counts for more than one applied competency.

Any Political Science course(s).

A student can count a maximum of six internship credits toward the major. Additional internship credit hours can be used as credits applied toward graduation.
