College Breadth Requirements:
The College Breadth requirements are in addition to the University Breadth requirement. Up to three credits from each of the University Breadth Requirement categories may be used to simultaneously satisfy these College of Arts and Sciences Breadth Requirements. Minimum grade C- required for courses used to satisfy College Breadth.
*If the grade earned is sufficient, a course may be applied toward more than one requirement (e.g., breadth and major requirements), but the credits are counted only once toward the total credits for graduation. If all but one course in a group has been taken in one department or program, a course cross-listed with that program will not satisfy the distribution requirement.
- Completion of the intermediate-level course (107 or 202) in an ancient or modern language with minimum grades of D-.
- The number of credits (0-12) needed and initial placement will depend on the number of years of high school study of foreign language.
- Students with four or more years of high school work in a single foreign language, or who have gained proficiency in a foreign language by other means, may attempt to fulfill the requirement in that language by taking an exemption examination through the Languages, Literatures and Cultures Department.
The math requirement must be completed by the time a student has earned 60 credits. Students who transfer into the College of Arts and Sciences with 45 credits or more must complete this requirement within two semesters.
Complete one of the following four options (minimum grade D-):
One of the following:
- Successful performance on a proficiency test in mathematics administered by the Department of Mathematical Sciences (0 credits awarded).
Second Writing Requirement:
A Second Writing Requirement approved by the College of Arts and Sciences. This course must be taken after completion of 60 credit hours, completed with a minimum grade of C-, and the section enrolled must be designated as satisfying the requirement in the academic term completed.
- Students must earn a C- or higher in all courses required.
- Students may not take courses pass/fail unless the course is graded solely on a pass/fail basis.
- Credits may be counted only once toward a degree.
- Students majoring in Linguistics and French and minoring in Cognitive Science may not use the same courses towards both, with the exception of LING 101 .
- Students double majoring in Linguistics and French and Cognitive Science may not use the same courses towards both degrees, with the exceptions of LING 101 and CGSC 485 .
Foreign Language Component:
Students who place out of FREN 107 , must take FREN 200 instead; the total credits for the major will then be 47 credits.

- No course may be used to satisfy more than one requirement in the major.
Linguistics and French majors may take either LLCU499 in the fall of the senior year (1cr.) or CGSC485, Seminar in Cognitive Science (3cr.) to fulfil the capstone requirement.
After required courses are completed, sufficient elective credits must be taken to meet the minimum credit requirement for the degree.
