The Department of International Languages offers courses in Chinese (Mandarin), German, Japanese, Spanish, Korean and Arabic.



It is recommended that students with a background in a language (either from grade 11 or 12 or from living or studying in another language speaking environment) receive a placement test prior to registering in their first language course. Arrangements for the placement test can be made with the Department of International Languages.

  1. Introductory courses in Chinese (Mandarin), German, Japanese, and Spanish carry program credit; however, CHIN 100, GER 100, and JAPN 100 do not count towards a major or minor.
  2. Students with grade 12 standing in a language will not normally receive credit for 100. However, students whose grade 12 (level III) second-language standing dates from five or more years previous to their registration in a University of Regina language course, and who, in the interim, have not taken any courses in that language, may choose to meet the second language requirement of the BA, and receive credit, by taking the introductory sequence of 100 and 101.
  3. Students who have some knowledge of their selected language, must consult the department for placement before registering.
  4. The Department has, or is developing, options for students to study and obtain program credit abroad. Please contact the Department for more information.
