Foreign Languages and Literature

The department offers introductory through advanced courses in French, German, and Spanish as well as courses through the intermediate level in Russian, and Japanese. In addition, it participates in such interdisciplinary programs as Latin American Studies, International Studies and English as a Second Language, and also offers summer courses in France, Germany, Mexico, Quebec, Russia, and Spain.

French 4040, German 4040, and Spanish 4040 are the approved university third writing courses for French, German and Spanish majors and minors respectively. Students must have completed English 1160 in order to take their third writing course (of the university core curriculum) in a foreign language.

There is a laboratory fee for all foreign language courses at the 1000 and 2000 levels.

The Department of Foreign Languages does not accept transfer credits from any institution for its 1000/2000 level courses except for those as allowed by the College of Arts and Sciences. To enroll in any French, German, Russian or Spanish course beyond 1110, a student who has not successfully completed the prerequisite courses at UNO must take the appropriate placement exam and qualify for the desired course. All students are subject to this requirement including transfer students. UNK/UNL students are not exempt from this requirement. The Department of Foreign Languages reserves the right to cancel the registration of any student who has not met the prerequisites for a course. Transfer courses at the 3000/4000 level are subject to the approval of a departmental adviser and the department chair. All foreign language courses must be completed with a grade of C or better to continue to the next course.
