1 Students completing the A.A. in Liberal Arts must demonstrate intermediate college-level (201-202) proficiency in a language other than English. The 201-202 courses require a prerequisite proficiency equivalent to the 101-102 sequence in the language. Placement testing determines initial foreign language level. Students completing 101-102 foreign language may use those credits to meet general elective requirements. Waivers or credit by exam (through CLEP) for previous experience is available for some languages. Students whose native language is not English may substitute general electives for foreign language upon the approval of the advising division chair.

5 Any 200-level literature course with an ENG prefix satisfies this requirement.

6 HIS 101-102 or HIS 121-122 are recommended.
