Cultural Enrichment Courses for Broadened Understanding

Designated cultural enrichment courses provide an option for students who choose not to complete two years of language study. These courses are intended to satisfy the broadened cultural understanding which underlies the foreign language requirement through study of a non-English speaking culture which reveals another people’s concepts of life and human relationships.

Students opting to complete the language requirement by taking cultural enrichment courses will complete twelve hours from any combination of language courses and those courses listed below, including at least six semester hours in a single language. Some January Term courses may also be approved as cultural enrichment courses, but no courses may be counted that otherwise are part of the student’s major or the Core Curriculum.

The following have been approved to be counted toward the cultural enrichment requirement.
