The University of Illinois at Springfield offers classes in Chinese, 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 general education requirements of the Capital Scholars Honors program.
Modern Languages area courses are taught by instructors with native speaking ability and emphasize verbal communication. Classes are kept small to ensure individual attention.
Modern Languages course offerings are listed in the current course schedule under the LNG course prefix. Permission of the instructor is required to enroll.
UIS students may also apply to study (for 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.
