For the Class of 2016 - 2019
Students who pursue a major in linguistics should take ten courses beyond LING 1. Also, in addition to fulfilling the College foreign language requirement, linguistics majors should take two more foreign language courses. They may fulfill this requirement by taking two courses in a single language beyond the first-year level. Alternatively, one or both of these additional language courses may be in a different language not closely related to the first.
The ten courses for the major should include the following:
1. Linguistics 22
2. Linguistics 20 or 21
3. At least three additional courses in the 20s or 30s (Linguistics 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 35)
4. At least two more courses in Linguistics, including one that satisfies the requirement for a culminating activity, which may be met in one of three ways:
(a) Completing a senior Honors thesis (Linguistics 86-87)
(b) Taking an advanced seminar in linguistics (Linguistics 80)
(c) Carrying out a one or two term independent study project (Linguistics 85)
5. Up to three other courses, either from the Linguistics offerings or selected from the following list, in consultation with an advisor: Anthropology 9; Education 58; French 35; Philosophy 6, 34; Russian 48.
Certain courses not listed here, such as advanced seminars in various departments, may also be counted towards the major with permission of the Chair.
