Specific requirements for world-language majors can vary according to the student’s “catalog year,” which is the catalog current at the time of the student’s first enrollment at the University. A student’s particular “catalog year” remains the same throughout their studies, unless the student elects to move a forward to more recent catalogue year.

The Fulbright College Advising Center makes major requirement checklists for all catalogue years available. The following major requirements should only be consulted as a quick reference guide and not as an official degree audit. Please schedule an appointment with an advisor to discuss your degree progress.

World Language major requirements for the current catalog year are as follows:

  • Fulfilled by completing six (6) hours of a single world language different than the major
  • Six (6) hours from any combination of department-approved WLLC courses (such as WLLC 2413, WLLC 3173, WLLC 4023, WLLC 4033), classical studies (CLST) courses, or language-related area/ethnic studies courses
  • Three (3) hours of a single world language different from the major plus one (1) course in a department-approved language-related course.

**Different for Classical Studies; see specific major requirements below
