    • Individually selected foreign areas of emphasis in which students take a minimum of 12 hours in at least 3 different disciplines or fields
    • Proficiency in a modern foreign language which provides important communication skills as well as additional depth in the chosen regional area of emphasis
    • At least 1 semester of study abroad
