FOREIGN LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT FOR THE B.A.
At USF Saint Petersburg, students can complete their foreign language requirement for the B.A., in Arabic.
In addition to the foreign language entrance requirement (as required by FS 240.233) all students applying for a Bachelor of Arts degree from USF St. Petersburg must demonstrate competency in a foreign language. To demonstrate this competency, students may take either two semesters of a beginning college-level foreign language or one semester of a higher-level course and earn a letter grade of “C” (no “S” grades) or above in the appropriate level course or demonstrate equivalent competency by passing an examination.
