A Romance Language Major is jointly offered by the Department of French and Italian and the Department of Spanish and Portuguese. This major is intended for students who wish to specialize in more than one Romance Language. Students selecting this major must take a total of 45 credits selected from courses in two of the three components listed below: French, Italian and Spanish. The first four courses listed under each group are required for that particular language component; exceptions or substitutions may be made only with the approval of the student's advisor in consultation with the Romance Language Advisory Committee. To achieve the total of 45 credits, 21 credits are taken in each of the two languages, as specified, and three additional credits are taken at the 400-level in either of the languages chosen. Literature or civilization courses may not be taken in translation. There are no requirements for support courses for the Romance Language Major. A minimum grade of "C" is required for all courses for the major. Students who wish to apply for Teacher's Certification should consult the College of Education at this University.
