L&IH Curriculum

The Language and International Health program requires the completion of a semester internship abroad. Graduates will be qualified to assume positions in a variety of settings, including integrated hospital systems, consulting firms, managed care organizations, pharmaceutical companies, as well as multicultural community centers. They can also pursue graduate degrees in community health, epidemiology/biostatistics, health administration, health systems and research.

In addition to the curriculum requirements below, students in the Language and International Health program will be required to pass a noncredit exit exam and submit a noncredit senior dossier to assess their language competence in various areas. Both assessments take place in the student’s last full semester at the University.

Students who have completed fewer than 50 credit hours may change majors into Language and International Health with a minimum cumulative grade-point ratio of 2.5. Students with 50 or more credit hours may apply for a change of major into Language and International Health, based on space availability, with a minimum cumulative grade-point ratio of 2.75.

Language Placement Test: If your intended major requires a foreign language (or if you wish to take a foreign language course as an elective) and you plan to take French, German or Spanish to meet that requirement, you must take the Clemson Foreign Language Placement Test (FLPT) before registering for a foreign language course. Click here for more information...
