Language Minors

Students can complete a minor in any of the foreign languages offered at the Department of International Languages Studies according to their preferences and their main fields of studies.  A minor in a foreign language is a great tool for students majoring in business, medical professions, education, social work, psychology, history, communication, public relations, religion, sciences, and music.  The minor requires a minimum of 24 credits, including 12 upper division credits (6 credits at AU) and a semester abroad in the ACA program.  Students who have spent time overseas as missionaries and are fluent in a foreign language do not need to participate in the ACA program.  Also, native speakers are waived from participate in the ACA program.
