The Four Year Plan
As a LING major, you will receive
the Arts and Sciences four-year graduation
guarantee if you follow the plan outlined
- Declare the major by the second
semester of your freshman year.
- Start your required language study
(unless this requirement is waived)
by the beginning of the sophomore
year and continue it without interruption.
- Complete LING 2000 and
either LING 1000 or LING
2400 by the end of the sophomore
- Take either LING 3430 or LING
4420 during the fall of
the junior year.
- Take LING 3100 and
an upper-division LING elective in
the spring of the junior year.
- Take the remaining required course
and an elective in the fall of the
senior year, and the remaining electives
in the spring of the senior year.
Students whose preparation in grammar
is weak should take LING 1500: Understanding
Grammar prior to enrolling in LING
2000. Note that LING 1500 does not
count towards the 33 total credit hours
needed for the major.
