Co-majors allow students to study two different languages while completing one single major. Students who complete a co-major are not required to complete a minor. Students may co-major in Chinese & Japanese or may choose two languages from the following list: French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish.
A co-major in Chinese and Japanese consists of fifteen semester hours of each language numbered above 2220, plus twelve semester hours of CHT/JPT 3000-level coursework in culture and literature. Of the combined thirty Chinese/Japanese language coursework, at least six semester hours must be taken from two 4000-level courses in one language and three semester hours from a 4000-level course in the other language. The student should consult with the Chinese and Japanese advisors to select appropriate courses.
A co-major in French, German, Italian, Russian, or Spanish consists of twenty-one semester hours numbered above 1999 in each of two programs selected. Students declaring a French co-major may take one single French course taught in English with written work done in English to satisfy the requirements of the major. For students declaring a Spanish co-major, linguistics (LIN) courses may count for major credit.
Special note: One 2000-level course in either language chosen for a co-major must be used to satisfy the Arts and Sciences foreign language requirement.
