Language General Education Requirements
Georgetown College
All students in the College must achieve proficiency in a language (ancient or modern) through the intermediate level. During New Student Orientation, placement exams are offered in most languages. Students who do not place above the intermediate level of a language on these placement exams fulfill the requirement by completing courses in a classical or modern language through the intermediate level. Please note that languages taught on an intensive basis require differing lengths of study to achieve intermediate mastery depending upon the language. For example, Intensive Spanish equips the student with intermediate mastery after one year (SPAN-011 followed by SPAN-032), while Arabic provides intermediate mastery after two years (ARAB-011–012, 111, 112).
The following language courses complete the College’s language requirement:
  • Arabic ARAB-112
  • Chinese CHIN-112 or 114
  • French FREN-022 or 032
  • German GERM-022 or 032
  • Greek (Ancient): CLSG-101
  • Greek (Modern): GREE-112
  • Hebrew HEBR-022
  • Italian ITAL-032
  • Japanese JAPN-112
  • Korean KREN-112
  • Latin CLSL-101
  • Polish PLSH-102
  • Portuguese PORT-032
  • Russian RUSS-012
  • Spanish SPAN-022 or 032
  • Turkish TURK-022
Students are strongly urged to complete the language requirement no later than the end of their sophomore year.
Please note the College does not grant credit for language study repeated at the same level of instruction. Transfer students (including from within the University) should be certain to clear their choice of course level with the Dean’s Office before enrollment. Intensive language study may or may not make further language study necessary.
