Majors in foreign languages are required to complete a language immersion experience as approved by the faculty adviser. The department will assist in placement appropriate to the student's needs, which might include residence in a foreign country, study abroad, exchange programs, international internships, or other experiences that assure intensive cultural and language experiences. In the semester prior to graduation from University of Tennessee Martin, majors are also required to assemble a portfolio under the supervision of a faculty adviser. This portfolio will include writing samples from various advanced classes and the results of two tests designed to assess language knowledge, proficiency and cultural literacy: an Oral Proficiency Interview and a departmental exam in advanced Spanish grammar. 

Majors in foreign languages are encouraged to enhance their education by completing, as appropriate, complementary programs of study in fields as diverse as English, political science, economics, travel and tourism, communications and education. Combining foreign language with training in such fields will better enable majors to pursue graduate studies and careers in various professions.
