Second Language

A second language is required for only some of the schools and programs at TCNJ:

Arts and Communication – selected programs

Business – selected programs

Education – selected programs

Engineering – no requirement

Humanities and Social Science – required of all programs

Nursing and Health Sciences – selected programs

Science – selected programs

Certain schools and programs are exempt from the language requirements because the number of accreditation or licensure requirements required of their students makes it impossible to complete both the language requirement and all other degree requirements.
