Language Placement Testing

There are many benefits of taking your language placement test as soon as you start your studies at Central. Once enrolled in a course at the right level for you, you can begin a language major (10 courses) or a minor (only 6 courses), which pair well with any primary major.

You can also meet your language requirement during your first semester. Contact Dr. Lourdes Casas ( to schedule a placement test and to learn more about how a language major or minor can serve you long-term professional goals!
