About this Program

The minor is open to all undergraduates.

By requiring two semesters of language study (beyond the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ language proficiency requirement), the program gives students the opportunity to enhance their language skills beyond the introductory level. Furthermore, an area studies minor that includes less commonly taught languages (Czech, Hungarian, Polish) as core requirements offers students a special opportunity as there are no comparable programs in the state of Florida.

The curriculum requires two semesters of a language beyond the CLAS language requirement, one East-Central European studies course and three electives from an approved list.

Of the total credits, no more than three may be individual work. Students must complete a minimum of six credits of coursework exclusive to the minor that cannot count toward the major(s) or other minors.
