Time and time again, we meet with students who don't know that foreign language is a part of the degree for most UVA grads and therefore something you should begin before you transfer.
Foreign Language is a part of our liberal arts core. Whether you are an English major, Physics major, Studio Art, Psychology or German major, you must take it before or during your UVA career. I've heard some students say they were advised not to take it before UVA. This is sadly incorrect. You will put yourself in a better position when you begin foreign language coursework prior to entering the university.
The Guaranteed Admissions Agreement requires it before you come to UVA.
Foreign Language is not necessary for Engineering, Architecture or Nursing applicants.
