In all cases college subject requirements should be completed before taking electives. Refer to the university and college requirements for particulars. In conference with a foreign language advisor each student will plan a balanced and coherent program designed for the student?s particular needs and interests. Through choice of electives the student may wish to combine the major program with another field of study: a second foreign language and literature, linguistics, the civilization of an area, an allied subject within the humanities, an allied field within the social sciences, sciences, or business administration.
