Language Studies Majors choose many different paths towards completion of their degrees depending on the following factors:
results of their language placement tests
number of languages they take
choice of their study abroad experience in both which year they take it and how long they study abroad
selection of a minor, a second major, or a TESL/TEFL Certificate
One example is given below for a student entering with placement scores at the 200 level who chooses to focus on one language, study abroad for a year, and add the TESL/TEFL Certificate.
