Notes:

***The Linguistics BA requirements include 3 courses in Linguistics electives and 3 Language-Related courses. These are indicated above in semesters 2 through 4. They may be taken in any order. Please note that students may elect to take levels 001-003 of any language other than English listed in CLLL or RLL to satisfy the ‘3 Language-Related courses’ requirement (courses must be taken in residence). Students choosing this language option to satisfy the Linguistics major requirements do not need to take an additional language to satisfy the Foreign Language requirement unless they choose to do so.

***Many of the courses required for the Linguistics BA also satisfy distribution requirements. The grid above indicates semester schedules that maximize the overlap between Linguistics BA and distribution requirements. Students may opt to satisfy their distribution requirements with courses outside of the Linguistics BA requirements

***The Linguistics BA requires successful completion of two Writing Intensive (WI) courses and one Quantitative Reasoning (QR) course. The grid above indicates one way to configure these requirements. Students may be able to complete some or all of these requirements in Linguistics BA courses.
