  3. 1.0 credit at the 2000-level or above and 1.0 credit in PSCI 2300 [1.0].

For French courses, FREN 1100 [1.0] will be treated as the equivalent of a credit at the 2000-level in another language, and 2000-level FREN courses will be treated as the equivalent 3000-level courses.

OR

By demonstrating prior language proficiency

Proficiency in French may be demonstrated by French language examinations conducted by the Department, or by successful completion of French Immersion in high school or possession of a Bilingual Diploma or Certificate. For other languages, the onus is on the student to provide suitable documentary evidence of proficiency to the Department.

Students should note that they will be required to use one or more of their elective credits if they choose to satisfy the language requirement through approved language credits.
