For International Business Majors
Students planning on pursuing International Business have four language options: French, German, Spanish, and Chinese. Each language option requires seven courses, so it is important to start your language coursework early. The Chinese option also requires a semester abroad.
If you have no prior language training, you should begin your language coursework in FL 1010 (where FL refers to your chosen foreign language).
If you have prior language training, you must take the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature's language placement test at least two weeks prior to your Camp War Eagle session to determine where you should begin your coursework.
If you score:
- 428 or above, you may take FL 3010 to FL 3040 (conversation courses)
- 372-427 , you may take FL 2020 (intermediate course)
- 325-371, you may take FL 2010 (intermediate course)
- 241-324, you may take FL 1020 (elementary course)
- 240 or below, you should take FL 1010 (elementary course)
There are two ways in which you may earn AP credit for language courses.
If you take an AP foreign language test and score:
- a 3, you receive credit for FL 1010
- a 4 or above, you receive credit for FL 1010 and FL 1020
If you start your Auburn coursework in more advanced language courses, you may receive AP credit as follows:
- If you start in FL 1020 and earn a C or better, you receive AP credit for FL 1010
- If you start in FL 2010 and earn a C or better, you receive AP credit for FL 1010 and FL 1020
