Undergraduate Catalog 2012-13
Marymount offers minors in French and Spanish. Foreign language courses in French, German, and Spanish are also offered as electives. The introductory-level courses also satisfy the Global Perspective component of the University Requirements. (See Global Perspectives section under University Requirements.)
The study of foreign language is both an excellent means for understanding other people and cultures and a valuable asset for a growing number of careers in business, industry, and government service.
Marymount students wishing to continue language study or to study additional languages may do so through Marymount’s membership in The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area. Information on scheduling and registering for courses offered by consortium member universities is available from the Marymount Registrar’s Office. See Students Enrolling at Consortium Institutions section for further information concerning Washington consortium guidelines.
