Courses in foreign languages are intended to provide the basic skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing as well as an introduction to the literature and the culture of the countries in question. The study of a foreign language may lead to a career in teaching or it may provide the student with a valuable supporting skill in many fields, such as business, public service, librarianship, social work, law, journalism, or the health professions. Reading knowledge of a foreign language is a requirement for many graduate degrees.

Placement Exam

Students with no previous university-level coursework in Spanish, French or German who wish to continue with one of these languages acquired previously must take the appropriate foreign language placement exam and will be placed accordingly.

The placement test is given to help the student select the proper course, but departmental advising is recommended.

Credit for Previous Language Study

The Department of Languages and Literatures grants up to 16 credits in French, German or Spanish (4 credits in Chinese or Japanese) for previous language study or other language experience provided the student earns at least a "B" in a follow-up course at UW-W. Students may enroll in any course except phonetics and the 390 conversation course to receive credits for previous language study. (See previous section: Placement Exam). The B grade must be earned in the first course taken at the university level.
