C. Comprehensive Oral Examination
Before graduation, the students give proof of their ability to communicate what they have learned in a comprehensive oral examination, in addition to the usual final semester exam in each subject.
D. Modern Languages
The instruction language at the College is English. Students who are not native English speakers should prove their capacity to perform college level studies in the English language by means of a thorough oral and written examination as determined by the Academic Dean. In the case of lacking proficiency in English, remedial English (ESL = English as a Second Language) must be taken and successfully passed in the course of the first semester.
Furthermore, each student must acquire proficiency in Spanish, the official international language of the Legionaries of Christ. The College offers multiple opportunities for the practice of the Spanish language. If needed, a Spanish course will be offered during the last semester before graduation, which may be counted towards the Foreign Language requirement. Some Literature and Communications classes may be given in Spanish.
