Notes on Modern Languages

To begin in any course other than 101 in Modern Languages, students need to take the placement test in French or Spanish prior to the start of the semester. Placement tests will also be administered during the first weeks of classes, and placement can be changed. Any student who needs the placement test at other times should contact the program faculty to arrange a time for administration of the test. Please consult program faculty for guidance in registering for the first language course. Either placement into a course numbered 301 or higher in either of the two languages, or completion of a 202 course will demonstrate competency in that language. In order to satisfy the language requirement for the Bachelor of Arts degree, a student must take 2 consecutive modern language courses for a total of 6 or more credits in the same modern language (MLL) other than English; this does not include American Sign Language.

A student enrolled at Carroll in a degree program, who has completed high school courses in French or Spanish language may enroll in an appropriate course at Carroll University (as determined by the program). When the student completes that course with a grade of B or higher, the student will receive retroactive credit for all courses leading up to the successfully completed course and will count toward graduation requirements. Special provisions are made for native and near-native speakers of French and Spanish.

Teaching majors and minors consist of the specific modern language courses listed below plus (1) an immersion experience, e.g., New Cultural Experiences Program [NCEP] or study abroad, (2) successful completion of a language competency exam in the semester prior to the semester of student teaching, and (3) the requirements in the Teacher Education Program.

The Education department requires students seeking MC-EA (Middle Childhood through Early Adolescence) or EA-A (Early Adolescence through Adolescence) licensure in French or Spanish to complete  EDU 355 - Special Methods in Teaching Elementary and Secondary Subjects .
