As with ordinary candidates for the BA, students in the 5-year Bachelor's-Accelerated Master's (BAM) degree program may obtain credit for Education Abroad during the junior year. Moreover, this offers a means for students who do not enter CU with the requisite level of language proficiency (i.e., readiness to take French courses at the 3000 level) to catch up. In the case of students who enter CU with 3000-level language proficiency, the total number of allowable credits toward the BAM is 15, the equivalent of a normal third year in the program. However, students who do not enter CU with 3000-level language proficiency may receive a maximum of 24 credits, representing equivalents for FREN 3010, 3050, 3100, 3110, 3120, and two courses at the level of FREN 4100 or above. Students planning on Education Abroad must meet with their advisor and with the Associate Chair for Graduate Studies to work out a precise course plan modeled on one or the other of the two program options (Simple and Honors).
