Language Requirements

Language Sequence by IUB Department

To determine the language course that is equivalent to the semester requirement noted in the eligibility section of your program page, please review the language sequencing below. (Note that some departments offer intensive courses that satisfy two semesters of language in a single, semester-long course). Students from other IU campuses should consult with their home campus foreign language departments to understand how and if the sequences vary from those at IUB.
