The University of Illinois at Springfield offers classes in Arabic, French, German, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish. Although UIS does not offer degrees in these disciplines, the study of language is a natural complement to many programs offered on campus.
The oral and written proficiency gained through completing the fourth course in a language sequence offered at UIS is necessary to fulfill one of the requirements of the Capital Scholars Honors Program. Third semester language classes may fulfill parts of the UIS General Education curriculum. Students should consult advisors for details.
Modern Languages area courses are taught by instructors with native speaking ability and emphasize verbal communication. Classes are kept small to ensure individual attention.
Course offerings in Modern Languages are listed in the current course schedule under the LNG course prefix. Permission of the instructor is required to enroll.
Third semester language classes at the level of Intermediate I, or the equivalent at other institutions, may count for credit for the ECCE Elective by Student Petition. Students should consult an academic advisor for more information.
Central Illinois Foreign Language and International Studies Consortium
UIS students may also apply to study (for UIS credit) the foreign languages offered at Lincoln Land Community College, Springfield College in Illinois, Illinois College, and MacMurray College through the Central Illinois Foreign Language and International Studies Consortium. Please contact the Modern Languages office for information.
