Humanistic Studies - Requirements for the Major

Language Requirement

All humanistic studies majors are expected to fulfill the non-English language requirement by completing one of the following:

  • Complete at least two semesters of college-level non-English language courses. Students who have taken French, German or Spanish in high school or who have acquired a knowledge of the language elsewhere may receive credit for that preparation by passing an advanced-level UW-Green Bay course with a grade of "C" or better.
  • Demonstrate the equivalent level of proficiency in a non-English language on a proficiency exam. NOTE: Students seeking to fulfill the language requirement through proficiency testing in French, German, or Spanish should contact the appropriate language coordinator. For skill assessment in other languages, students should contact the chair of Modern Languages.
