Quarter Curriculum - For Reference Only

Effective fall 2013, RIT will convert its academic calendar from quarters to semesters. The following content has been made available as reference only. Currently matriculated students who began their academic programs in quarters should consult their academic adviser for guidance and course selection.

The modern language and culture minor consists of five courses: three language courses beyond Beginning Level I and two culture courses. The minor provides beginning and some intermediate level study of a modern language and appropriate courses in the culture of the nations where that language is most often used. The goal of this minor is to introduce students to the language, customs, and cultural aspects (e.g., history, art, literature, politics, anthropology, and music) of one particular country or area. Students will become aware of the relationship between language and culture and of the differences between their own language and culture and those of the country they choose to study.
