This degree requires a minimum of 18 units. Students may fulfill the 18-unit requirement by completing the entire sequence (LANG 101 F, 102 F, 203 F, and 204 F) for a single foreign language. Some students may be placed into the language course sequence at a higher level than LANG 101 F. For example, according to the prerequisite policy, students who complete high school coursework with a C or better may place out of some of the language sequence. However, these students are not awarded units for the courses out of which they placed. Such students must complete the 18-unit degree requirement by selecting the remaining units from the list of restricted electives.
