Modern Language Placement Exams @ No Cost

 I am happy to report that, in an effort to streamline the placement process for MTU students,  the Department of Humanities has agreed to assume the cost of the modern language placement exam beginning February 2013. Hence, there will be no charge to students for the exam going forward into the 2013-2014 calendar year.

 TAKE THE FIRST STEP

The online Modern Language Placement exam is being offered now until the close of Fall registration 2013.

 There is no cost for the exam. The exam is required for students with prior background in Chinese, French, German or Spanish.

 Exam score ensures appropriate course placement and possible award of advanced placement credit.

 The registration form is available online at:

http://www.mtu.edu/humanities/undergraduate/pdfs/mltestreg2013.pdf

or at the Humanities Office in Walker 319.

Modern Language Course Offerings

This summer 2013, we will be offering the following mostly beginning language classes:

Track A:
    52208    HU2271    Beginning French IA        9:35-10:50
    52235    HU2272    Beginning French IB        9:35- 10:50
    52167    HU2291    Beginning Spanish IA     2:05- 3:20

Track B
    52172    HU2281    Beginning German IB    (online)
    52345    HU3265    topics in East Asian Cultures    (online)
Beginning language courses are designed for “true beginners.” If the students you advise have had at least one year of prior language study, they are required to complete the Michigan Tech modern language placement test in order to be placed at the appropriate level.

Here is the newly revised link for placement exam registration:

http://www.mtu.edu/humanities/undergraduate/pdfs/mltestreg2013.pdf

Beginning Fall 2013, students who place into a 3000 level language class, and complete at least one language course at this level successfully, satisfy the Global Learning graduation requirement. In other words, they may opt out of UN1025: Global Issues. 3000 and 4000 level modern language classes are offered during Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters.

Spring 2013 Internship with Aspirus Hospital HR Department

Internship Opportunity – Business Student

 

Aspirus Keweenaw Hospital – Human Resources Department

Approximately 20 hours per week. $10.00 per hour.

This internship is to fill in for a 12-week maternity leave for the HR Administrator. Schedule is 20 hours per week, as follows:

Every other Monday: 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM

Every other Tuesday: 8:00 AM – noon

All other hours are flexible, depending on your schedule.

The 20 hours per week will start in late March, at the latest, but possibly earlier. We’d like to have an applicant selected sooner, so we can train you on your duties. Training would be less than 20 hours and flexible.

Duties include complex clerical tasks relating to the HR functions of recruiting and benefits administration; running reports from HRIS; facilitating biweekly new employee orientation and writing and distributing monthly internal newsletter.

This is a great opportunity for the right student with the right schedule to learn a lot about the Human Resources function of business! Upper-classman preferred; 2.50 or higher GPA.

Please submit resumes to Lindsay Jenson at ljenson@aspiruskeweenaw.org.

Thank you!

Fellowship for study in Germany

The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX), a yearlong fellowship to study and intern in Germany, is open to applicants in all career fields, though preference is given to students in vocational, technical, engineering, business, agricultural, and scientific fields.  Students traditionally underrepresented in study abroad opportunities are especially encouraged to apply.

The fellowship is funded by the US and German governments through a grant provided by the US Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, under the authority of the Fulbright-Hays Act of 1961, as amended. 

The CBYX program annually provides 75 participants with two months of intensive German language training, a semester of study at German University or University of Applied Sciences, a five-month internship with a German company in the participant’s career field, housing, transatlantic airfare, health insurance, and a monthly stipend for living expenses.

Prior German language knowledge is not required, though it is preferred.  Applicants should have clear career goals and some relevant work experience in their career field, which may include summer, part-time, or internship work.  Participants must be between the ages of 18-24, possess a high school diploma or equivalent, and be US citizens or permanent residents.

Interested applicants can apply online at www.CBYX.info.  The application deadline for the 2013-2014 program is December 1, 2012


The Baden-Württemberg STIPENDIUM for Vocationally Qualified People “Work Immersion Study Program” (WISP) is a summer fellowship program offered exclusively to college students in vocational fields and includes funding for one month of intensive German language study, a two-month internship with a German company, housing, transatlantic airfare, health insurance, and a €300 monthly stipend.

Please note that the eligibility criteria for WISP have changed.  WISP is now open to students in vocational fields who have completed at least 4 semesters of study by the start of the program in June 2013.  Applicants must be enrolled at a US college before and after the program and must have completed at least 1 semester of college-level German by the start of the program.  Participants must be between the ages of 18-27 and be US citizens or permanent residents.

WISP is funded by the Baden-Württemberg STIPENDIUM and is administered by Cultural Vistas in cooperation with the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG) and their partners.  Interested applicants can find out more and apply online by visiting www.WispGermany.org.


The application deadline for both WISP and CBYX is December 1, 2012.  We look forward to receiving applications from your students, and to answering any questions they may have!
