Primary National-Linguistic Field

Students develop proficiency in a national-linguistic tradition by completing four upper-division courses in the chosen field. Of the four upper-division courses, at least three courses must be on literature or film. The fourth course may be on a non-literary topic relevant to the field such as history or philosophy.

It is important to note that satisfying the language requirement in the primary field of study does not necessarily fulfill the Primary National-Linguistic Field requirement. Students are advised to plan their primary field of study in consultation with the major adviser. The Major Progress Form should be filled out with the intended courses.
