Kenyon's Language Requirement
A chart detailing how to satisfy Kenyon's foreign language requirement is available on the registrar's Web site
During the Orientation Program, placement tests in French, German, and Spanish as well as other languages will be given to incoming students. The list of departmental recommendations regarding placement will be made available to faculty advisors as soon as the tests have been processed.
If you have studied more than one modern language in secondary school and are considering courses in more than one language or literature, you are best advised to take the placement test in the language in which you feel most competent or which you are most likely to continue studying at Kenyon. Arrangements can be made with individual instructors to determine placement for the other language(s).
Students who have scored 3, 4, or 5 on the College Board Advanced Placement test in language or literature need not take a placement examination in that language and will have fulfilled the College's language requirement. Kenyon faculty advisors will have a list noting any advanced placement credit and will recommend appropriate courses.
