Students must demonstrate proficiency in another language. This may be accomplished by completing 6 credits of work with a GPA of 3.0 or higher in the department of
Modern Languages (MOLA) at UFV or by submitting evidence of comparable achievement at a recognized post-secondary institution. The English Honours Committee may, in some cases, determine proficiency by administering a language proficiency assessment with the assistance of a qualified specialist in the language the candidate chooses for evaluation.
