2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog


Modern Language Studies, BA

Requirements

The BA with a major in modern language studies requires 30 semester hours in a combination of modern language courses and area studies courses. Each student forms a program of study in consultation with a faculty adviser in the Department of Modern Language Studies. Students may concentrate in German or French.

General Requirements

To earn a major in modern language studies, students must complete a total of 30 hours in language courses and interdisciplinary courses from other departments. Students must complete 15-18 hours in their language of specialization at the 30000 level or above. In order for these courses to count toward the major, they must be taught in the relevant language.

In addition, students must complete 12-15 hours of courses that are thematically related to their language of specialization. These courses may be chosen from the list of approved courses in each language field, but others may also be counted, with the approval of the major adviser. These courses must come from a minimum of two other departments. One German course taught in English (for example, GRMN 20133 – Berlin: A City in Film) may be counted among the 12-15 hours of thematically related courses for the German major.
