Foreign Language Requirement

The ability to communicate across language barriers is an invaluable skill in the international arena. Before completion of the program, MIAGE students must accomplish advanced proficiency in a second international language. The verification form should not be submitted until after you have started the program.

This requirement may be satisfied in any of the ways listed on this page. When students have prepared all necessary documentation to demonstrate foreign language proficiency, they should submit the language verification form (linked under additional resources) to the graduate school.


When emailing the language verification form to the graduate school representative, you must also cc the MIAGE program manager on your message. Visit the Staff page for the program manager's contact information.
