Since not all courses are offered in every semester or on every campus, students are strongly advised to seek counselling from members of the Department of Language and Cultures before planning their program. For some of our courses, students are required to take a placement test prior to registering. For assessments or to schedule an appointment, please contact your instructor (See Faculty Listing).
