Trinity College's Foreign Language (FL) requirement may be met in different ways, depending upon the level at which you begin language study, but every graduate of Trinity College is expected to attain proficiency at least equivalent to that of the first intermediate course in that language.
If you begin your language study at Duke at the intermediate level or above, you can fulfill the language requirement by completing a 300-level course coded FL. For example:
- If you place into the first semester of the intermediate level, you will take three courses in the same language.
- If you place into the second semester of the intermediate level, you will take two courses in the same language.
- If you place into the 300-level, you will take one course.
If you begin your language study at Duke at the elementary level, you can fulfill the foreign language requirement in that language by completing three (3) courses coded FL.
