Department of Foreign Languages requires a final portfolio from all graduating majors (in
Spanish, French, and German) during the last semester of their senior year.
If you are a major, or are even considering becoming a foreign language
major, please save (on computer disk if possible) at least one example
of your best work from this class and all other language classes you take
towards fulfillment of your major.
All majors will register for FL 4990 during their senior year. This course meets only once in an orientation meeting on the second Friday of each semester. In creating your Senior Portfolio, you will be asked take a short oral exam and also upload several documents. The entire process shouldn't take more than a few of hours, assuming you've kept examples of your coursework.
During their senior year, all foreign language majors will complete FL 4990 in order to help the department assess how well it has met its goals. Students are encouraged to keep copies of their best work from each course taken in the major. These examples will be used in FL 4990.
