Foreign Language Exam

The Graduate Student Foreign Language Exam will be given in the week of March 7, 2011 (the day and time to be determined) for students in graduate programs with a foreign language requirement. If you wish to take the exam this semester, please send the following information to Dr. Sandra Stjepanovic at by Friday, February 18, 2011.

1. Your name

2. Language of the exam

3. Area of study (A text in an appropriate general area of study will be selected for you by a faculty member in the language area.)

4. Your department

The procedure for Foreign Language exams is as follows:

The student will read an approximately 250-300 word text related to his/her area of study and paraphrase its content in English. The answer will be evaluated by a faculty member from the relevant language area. The student will receive a “Pass” grade if his/her translation is coherent and reflects the gist of the original in a fairly accurate manner. Students will have one hour to complete the exam and may use a conventional dictionary (i.e., not a computer). Students should bring their own dictionaries.
