Yes, it can!
Many medical schools have a requirement for the minimum number of humanities class an applicant must have taken during their undergraduate education. With the increasing requirements for hard sciences, and now also for some of the “softer” sciences for medical schools (such as psychology and sociology), it is becoming increasingly difficult to fullfill all your premed requirements!
Many students ask “does a foreign language count as a humanities class?”. The short answer is yes, in most instances. Most medical schools will count a foreign language as a humanities class for their prerequisite requirements. There are a few that do not, so we recommend checking on a school by school basis.
