- Area Study Course or Cultural Study Course (3 hours)*
- Foreign Language or Equivalent (10 hours)**
*Students must obtain approval of the course from the International Business Major advisor.
**Students already proficient in a foreign language may take a departmentally approved language proficiency test. The students will be required to pay for any applicable costs of the exam. A passing score on the test, as deemed appropriate by the international business advisor, will be required. Students are not given PSU credit for passing the proficiency exam, nor do they earn PSU credit hours for passing the exam. Students may be required to take approved electives in lieu of the 10 hour foreign language requirement if a passing grade on the exam is achieved. The International Business adviser, or departmental representative, will determine substitution courses. In all cases, students must earn the minimum number of credit hours required for the major.
