Satisfy the Language Requirement (LR) by completing Language Courses

Students who lack second language skill upon entry, or who wish to learn a new language, can satisfy the language requirement by satisfactorily completing language instruction courses up to an intermediate level, in a modern language other than English . In most cases, this means completing the equivalent of two years (2.0 credits) of university-level language study.

Language courses offered at Carleton, as well as the minimum requirements to fulfill the language requirement, are available by clicking on the button below.

French language courses are offered by the Department of French.

Instruction in other languages is offered through the School of Linguistics and Language Studies (SLALS).

Students who have some second language skills, though not enough to satisfy the requirement, will be expected to take a placement test in order to determine the appropriate course for them.
