PART II: LANGUAGE AND CROSS-CURRICULAR REQUIREMENTS
Foreign Language Requirement: Each student must include a course in a foreign language at the intermediate level or higher; as an option, students may choose a new language, in which case they must complete a two-semester sequence of the same elementary language. A new language is one in which a student has studied for not more than one full year in secondary school.
Writing Across the Curriculum: Each student must complete two designated Writing (W) courses.
Technology: Information skills are an essential part of a modern liberal arts education. Students should acquire skills in internet navigation and research, database searching, and traditional library research. In addition, students should be able to integrate appropriate technology into their learning and research.
