For Arabic, Chinese, Classical Greek, Italian, or Latin

The Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures offers courses in elementary and intermediate Arabic, Chinese, Classical Greek, Italian, and Latin. In all these programs, the department strives to develop academic excellence in our students within a context of strong ethical and moral foundations based on faith, while providing opportunities for students to assume positions of leadership and service to the human community through the power instilled by competence in a second language and culture.

Most students come to Marquette having taken many years of a language in both junior and senior high school, experienced immersion in a foreign culture, or both. Many students wish to continue pursuing their passions for foreign cultures and literatures, and we encourage them to do so. The goal of the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures is to place incoming students in the most appropriate level of foreign language study based on their previous exposure to the language.

The Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures will review the results of the Foreign Language Placement Survey, in particular, the number of years that the language was studied, grades earned, etc. The Department reserves the right to change the student’s placement in a course if it believes that the student has not been placed at the appropriate level, or in the most appropriate course based on the student’s exposure to the language. Students who believe they were misplaced should consult the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures.
