These specific elective courses are required to earn the applicable TC. Students that anticipate transferring to FAU’s School of Criminology and Criminal Justice program, should take two foreign language courses for their electives due to the program’s foreign language requirements. Students do have the option of taking CLEP exams for the foreign language courses. Should students not take two foreign language courses or take CLEP exams for those courses, then students who have completed their A.A. or A.S. that transfer into FAU’s School of Criminology and Criminal Justice program will have to take the two foreign language courses at FAU which will be in addition to the 60 credits needed to complete their bachelor’s.
Students are strongly encouraged to meet with an advisor to create a personalized educational plan.
