Journalism majors can choose to get either a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree (a university general-education requirement). The Bachelor of Arts requires completion of third-term, second-year language (or equivalent) with a grade of C-/P or better.
UO has a wide range of foreign language courses to choose from. If you are continuing in a language you have previously studied, take a placement test during orientation so you know where to begin. If you are starting a new language, start with the first year courses (101, 102, 103) before moving on to the second year (201, 202, 203). 101 courses are offered in the fall.
Several languages have accelerated first-year courses (111/112, 104/105) that are designed for students who've studied the language but don't yet have proficiency for second-year courses. 111 courses are typically offered every fall and winter; 112 courses are offered every winter and spring.
Below are the foreign language courses currently offered by UO that can be used to complete this requirement:
For students whose native language is not English, UO will accept English as the foreign language used to complete this requirement. Provide a high school or college transcript to the Office of Admissions as evidence of formal training in the native language. Then, after completing any required Academic English for International Students (AEIS) courses, complete WR 121 and either WR 122 or 123 with grades of C–/P or better.
Other foreign languages are offered as self-study languages through the Yamada Language Center. However, these do not fulfill the Bachelor of Arts requirement.
