CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE WITH A MAJOR IN ARABIC LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

On page 256, in the section DEGREES, make the following changes:

Arabic Language and Literature

Major: [Eighteen] Twenty-four semester hours of upper-division coursework in Arabic language, literature, and culture: [, including Arabic 322, 330K, 330L, and 360L. Only courses conducted primarily in Arabic may be counted toward the major.]

1. Six hours of language
a. Arabic 320K, Arabic Readings and Grammar I.
b. Arabic 320L, Arabic Readings and Grammar II.
2. Six hours in Arabic 360L, Topics in Arabic Literature.
3. Six hours chosen from the following courses:
a. Arabic 330K, Advanced Readings in Arabic I.
b. Arabic 330L, Advanced Readings in Arabic II.
c. Arabic 360L, Topics in Arabic Literature. Topics of Arabic 360L used to fulfill requirement 2 may not also be used to fulfill requirement 3.
4. Six hours in Arabic 372, Topics in Arabic Culture.

Minor for Arabic language and literature majors: Twelve semester hours, including at least six hours of upper-division coursework, in any one other field of study in the University. Six of the required twelve hours must be taken in residence.

Rationale:
To make the requirements for the major more flexible, broadening content to include Arabic culture; raising hours to twenty-four to conform with the majority of other language majors within Liberal Arts.

The minor is corrected to reflect the existing policy that students must minor in a field other than Arabic.
