Foreign Language Requirement

The majority of schools require at least 6-8 credits of foreign language at the College level to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology; however, the Foreign Language requirement varies from institution to institution and may depend on how many foreign language courses you took at the high school level.  For this reason, you should check with your intended transfer institution to determine how many foreign language credits are required for your intended transfer program and plan accordingly.   To fulfill foreign language requirements, you should select from the below Transfer Assurance Guide approved foreign language courses.  If your intended program of study doesn't require foreign language or you have fulfilled the requirement based on coursework taken in high school, you may select other appropriate Ohio Transfer Module or Transfer Assurance Guide approved courses as electives, in place of the foreign language requirement.  See recommendations below for elective course selection.
