    LINGUIST 150. Language in Society

    or LINGUIST 160. Introduction to Language Change

    or, in advance consultation with the Linguistics undergraduate studies adviser, a course in historical linguistics or the history of a language.

  3. At least four other courses determined in advance consultation with the Linguistics undergraduate studies adviser. Students are encouraged to take at least one 200-level Linguistics course. Students may also choose to do independent work with a faculty member of their choice.
