General Requirements for Minors

Minors are available in Chinese, French, German, and Spanish. French, German, and Spanish minors are required to take six upper-division courses in the appropriate language area beyond the intermediate level, preferably two 200-level courses and four 300-level courses. One departmental elective given in English (an ML course) may be included among the six courses. Chinese minors are required to take six upper-division courses: four or five in Chinese beyond the intermediate level and one or two ML courses.

Students who minor in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and study abroad must take half of their course requirements for the minor at Loyola. Upon their return from study abroad, all students with a Minor in Chinese, French, German, or Spanish must take one 300-level course in the language of their major at Loyola.

Specific Requirements for Minors:

Within the German minor, students can select an area studies focus. Requirements are three 200-level courses; one ML course (any level); and two 300-level courses, one of which can be chosen from among relevant courses in other departments (written approval of a German Area Studies Steering Committee member required).


Besides the traditional Minor in Chinese, French, German or Spanish, students may elect to apply some approved departmental courses to an interdisciplinary Minor in Asian Studies, Gender Studies, Italian Studies, Latin American and Latino Studies, or Medieval Studies.
