[1] Purposes

  • To develop proficient students with a functional control of the four fundamental language skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
  • To increase students' awareness, critical understanding, empathy, and respect for other cultures.
  • To enable students to function effectively in a changing global community.
  • To stress the relevance of the study of language, culture, and literature to career preparation.
  • To develop a lasting appreciation for language, culture, and literature as a means of broadening our understanding of human experience.

[2] Programs

Major programs are offered in Modern Languages, with French and Spanish concentrations, and minor programs are offered in Chinese, French, German, and Spanish. The BA degree requirement for foreign language may be fulfilled in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, or Spanish. The curriculum permits maximum authentic practice of everyday language and cultural situations as well as in-depth study of general and specific topics in culture and literature. Students are highly encouraged to study abroad as they complete their language program.

Modern Languages majors (French and Spanish) are counseled to combine a second major or a minor in a related area of interest that will enhance their preparation for a professional career. Upon graduation, majors may qualify to teach on the secondary level, to attend graduate school, or to secure employment in any one of a variety of fields requiring proficiency in a second language.

[3] Advanced Placement

The Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures participates in the advanced placement program. Courses and the minimum requirements to be met in order to earn credit can be found elsewhere in the bulletin (see the Advanced Placement Program section of this bulletin). In general, students who have an AP score and who are interested in continuing study in the same language at UCA will be able to receive more credit if they also follow the procedures described below for the Department's Credit by Examination program.

[4] Credit by Examination

Students who have not previously received undergraduate credit in that language at a college or university may receive credit by examination. Such credit is limited to a maximum of 6 hours in a language or 12 hours within the department and is granted for the six credit hours of course work that immediately precedes the course of placement when the following criteria are met:

  1. Achievement of a satisfactory score on proficiency examinations administered by the Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.
  2. Satisfactory completion, with a minimum grade of B, of the language course at the level of placement recommended by the Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.
  3. The student formally requests credit from the Department after completing the first course.

[5] Foreign Language Requirement for the Bachelor of Arts Degree

The Bachelor of Arts degree requires completion of three (3) semester hours of a foreign language at 2000-level or above. Guided-study (i.e., correspondence) courses will not be accepted as transfer credit in fulfillment of the foreign language requirement. Note: Students with prior experience in a language must take the departmental placement test before enrolling in their first course. The French, German, and Spanish placement exams are available at http://uca.edu/wlan/placement. There is no fee to take a placement exam. As an alternative, students sufficiently proficient in a foreign language can apply for a BA Foreign Language Exemption with the chair of the World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures department.

[6] Undergraduate Scholars Program in French or Spanish

During the senior year, a student majoring in French or Spanish may be invited to participate in the undergraduate scholars program. Minimal requirements for graduation in the program are as follows:

  1. Achievement of a 3.25 GPA overall and a 3.50 in the major
  2. Demonstration of advanced level proficiencies in all four skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) on a senior exit examination
  3. Successful completion of course 4310 demonstrated by submission and approval of a research paper on a literary, cultural, or linguistic topic
  4. Presentation of an oral defense of the research paper before a committee made up of three members of the faculty of the department

[7] Baccalaureate Degrees

The degree of Bachelor of Arts in Modern Languages, with a major concentration in French or Spanish, requires successful completion of 120 hours (of which 40 must be upper division), including (1) the UCA Core: complete 38 hours to meet lower-division UCA Core requirements and complete upper-division UCA Core requirements using designated courses (see the UCA Core requirements); (2) all degree requirements; (3) a major concentration in French or Spanish as outlined below; and (4) a minor as planned with the student's minor advisor.

WLAN 2350 and Chinese, French, German, and Spanish 2320 courses taught in the Department of World Languages satisfy the lower-division UCA Core requirement in Critical Inquiry (Humanities). WLAN 2315 fulfills the Diversity in Creative Works Core requirement, while WLAN 2325 satisfies the Diversity in World Cultures requirement. Both WLAN 2315 and 2325 are humanities courses. Students may fulfill the upper-division UCA Core requirements in Diversity, Critical Inquiry, Responsible Living, and Effective Communication in minor and major courses in Chinese, French, German, and Spanish. Students will take FREN or SPAN 4110, Senior Capstone Project, as the required UCA Core capstone.
