Requirements

Majors in Dual Languages will complete a program of study that hinges on two equally important aspects: increasing the fluency and accuracy of students’ communication in two different languages, and fostering a profound understanding and appreciation of key cultural aspects of two different cultures (which includes, among other things, history, literature, art, music, etc.). The Dual Language Major combines the study of two of the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish and requires the completion of ten courses.

Complete Six Primary Language Courses


Students may choose Arabic, Chinese, French, German, or Spanish as a primary language. Courses in these languages must be at the 300-Level or above.

If Italian is the primary language the student must take the following six courses: ITA 251 , ITA 252 , ITA 337 , ITA 338  and two additional courses at the 300-level or above (one of which may be a Directed Study). Courses taken abroad must be taught in Italian, and approved by the Italian Program Director.

Complete Four Secondary Language Courses


Students may choose Arabic, Chinese, French, German, or Spanish as a secondary language. At least two of the courses in these languages must be at the 300-Level or above.

If Italian is the secondary language the student must take four Italian courses: ITA 251 , ITA 252  and two additional courses at the 300-level or above (one of which may be a Directed Study). Courses taken abroad must be taught in Italian, and approved by the Italian Program Director.

Language Study Abroad Requirement


All majors in Dual Languages, French, or Spanish, are required to spend a semester abroad in an approved program of study or in one of the international internships sponsored by Stonehill College.

Students may transfer back three pre-approved courses taken abroad to the major. Additional language courses may be pre-approved as general electives.
