How many prerequisites are needed at Dallas International?
Dallas International University requires students to demonstrate previous training in linguistics. If students do not have this training, then the student will need to take 15-hours of undergraduate credit (4 courses).

Students are encouraged to work with the Dallas International academic advisor for course availability and meeting the prerequisites in order to take the required MABEL courses at DIU.
