Modern Languages Minor - Arabic, French, German, Spanish, Etc.


This minor can be declared through the Department of: Modern Languages and Cultures 

A cadet who wishes to earn a minor in Modern Languages must complete a “minor Declaration Form” for each language in which he or she wishes to earn a minor. Minors may concentrate their work in the following configurations:

(1). A cadet may earn a minor by successfully completing 12 credit hours above the 200-level of the chosen language. A maximum of nine hours may be taken from among the 300-level courses and a minimum of 3 hours must be taken at the 400-level. If a cadet qualifies for a minor in more than one language, he or she will be awarded a minor in each language.

(2). A cadet may earn a minor in Modern Languages by earning 6 hours on the 300 level of one language and 6 hours at the 200-or higher level of another language. Cadets pursuing this track may choose among the languages offered by the department and will be awarded a minor in Modern Languages.

Every cadet who minors in Modern Languages is strongly urged to study in a country where his or her foreign language is the principal tongue. Courses taken elsewhere and requests for alternate configurations of a minor must be approved in advance by the head of the Department of Modern Languages. Institute regulations require a cadet to maintain a C average (2.00 GPA) in all minor courses.
