The Liberal Arts faculty believes that, in an era of globalization when people of all nations are increasingly mixing with and doing business with each other, students should try to achieve a real proficiency in a foreign language. As a step toward that goal, students in the Liberal Arts are therefore required to achieve proficiency in a foreign language, modern or ancient, by passing a course at Tulane at the 203 level or above. Language Courses at the 300 level or above, taken in fulfillment of the foreign language requirement, may also count toward a major.
If a student demonstrates proficiency at the 203 level upon arrival at Tulane with a score of 4 or 5 on an AP examination, with a score of 640 or above on an SAT II examination, or by passing a Tulane-administered examination, then the student must take one additional language course at Tulane because the faculty believes that all students should be exposed to language instruction at the college level. Students who test out of 203 may satisfy this requirement by taking a higher level course in the language that they have tested out of.
