BMCC at the MLA

Three English professors present at the Modern Language Association’s prestigious international convention.

The Modern Languages Department is an integral part of the Liberal Arts Curriculum. Its principal objectives are to develop fluency in the written and spoken language and to familiarize students with foreign languages, literature and culture. All courses are given in the target language unless otherwise specified. The language laboratory is an essential part of all languages classes. In the Liberal Arts, Early Childhood Education, Human Services and Sciences curricula, two semesters of the same foreign language are required.

In the Business Administration program curriculum, Modern Languages courses are considered as a Liberal Arts elective option. Native speakers of the language in question and students who have studied a language in high school should go to the Modern Languages Department for a placement test.

Students are required to take two consecutive courses from 101 to 210 and thereafter in any order. For literature level courses, students must either pass level 210 or score at literature level on the written placement test in order to take literature levels. Courses may also be taken to satisfy the Liberal Arts elective requirement.
