Loyola's Language Requirement

As part of its commitment to a broad-based, liberal-arts education, Loyola requires all students, regardless of their major to demonstrate proficiency in a modern or classical foreign language at the intermediate college level, or higher. Depending on how high students place on their placement exam, anywhere from 1-4 language courses will be needed to fulfill Loyola's basic language requirement.
