The University of Illinois at Springfield offers classes in Chinese and Spanish. A minor in Spanish is also offered.

Modern Languages 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.

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, Benedictine University, Illinois College, and MacMurray College through the Central Illinois Foreign Language and International Studies Consortium. Please contact the Modern Languages office for information.

Proficiency Testing

Students can obtain proficiency credit by completing a proficiency exam conducted by Modern Languages faculty. Proficiency testing is available in the languages that we typically offer, but is ultimately contingent upon the availability of faculty in those languages. Students seeking proficiency testing in languages that our program does not offer will be responsible for arranging for an examiner to work with our office to complete the testing.

Grading Policy

Students must obtain a grade of C or higher (grades of C- or lower will not be accepted) to advance to the next level of language course work.
