A visiting scholar from China teaches a Chinese language class.



Non-degree Courses

Pair a language with other majors

Language classes work really well with any major at St. Cloud State, plus it looks great on your resume. Did you know that with some majors, you can take a year of language instead of a minor. That's only 2 classes (8 credits total) instead of 6-8 classes (18-32 credits). Majors that allow this include:

  • Art History
  • Communication Studies
  • Film Studies
  • Geography
  • Hospitality and Tourism
  • History
  • International Relations
  • Mass Communications
  • Latin American Studies
  • Music
  • Philosophy
  • Political Science
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Women's Studies
