Majors Requiring a Foreign Language

The following majors include a foreign language requirement: English, English with Secondary Education, Global Studies, History, History with Secondary Education, Psychology, and Sociology. Students in these majors must achieve a 200-level proficiency in a foreign language in order to graduate (with lower proficiency levels permitted in certain language areas).

All foreign language courses must be taken for a letter grade (cannot be taken pass/fail) and require a C or better for advancement to the next language level. Some students may demonstrate a 200-level proficiency without language coursework at Lasell; others may take an appropriate Foreign Language CLEP Examination for transfer credit. However, most students in majors with a foreign language requirement will need to complete four to twelve foreign language credits. Students in majors that include a foreign language requirement are advised to begin their foreign language study as early as possible.
