Only two ALS or LIN courses at the 100 and 200 levels may apply toward the major.  Students may replace a second year of foreign language with LIN 409 and an elective.  The term “elective” may not be completely “free” in that this table does not address the university requirement of having 32 credits at the 300/400 level.  

Please note: Student on scholarship or financial aid must be in a minimum of 12 credits per semester
