Foreign Language requirement at Geneva
Students entering Geneva College with less than two years of one foreign language must make up the deficiency within the first two years of attendance at Geneva. Students who have not taken two years of the same foreign language must take two semesters of one foreign language at the college level. These students are encouraged to register for SPA 101, Elementary Spanish I or HEB 101, Elementary Hebrew I and do not need to take the Spanish Assessment. Students who have completed one year of foreign language must take the spring semester of that same foreign language at the college level. For example, if you have taken one year of Spanish in high school you need to take SPA 102, Elementary Spanish II, to fulfill your language deficiency.
