CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE WITH A MAJOR IN ASIAN CULTURES AND LANGUAGES IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

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

Asian Cultures and Languages

The Bachelor of Arts with a major in Asian cultures and languages is offered with specialization in Chinese, Japanese, Hindi and/or Urdu, Malayalam, or Sanskrit.

Major: Twenty-four semester hours, including twenty-one hours of upper-division coursework, in the language and culture of one of the areas of specialization listed above. The twenty-four hours must include twelve hours of upper-division coursework in the language of specialization and nine hours of upper-division coursework in Asian studies related to the specialization. A list of courses that fulfill this requirement is available in the Department of Asian Studies. For students specializing in Japanese, the remaining three hours must be Japanese 322 or 330; for others, the remaining three hours must be chosen from the area of specialization or from the list of Asian studies courses related to the specialization.

Minor for Asian cultures and languages majors: Twelve semester hours, including at least six hours of upper-division coursework, in any one field of study in the University other than the area of specialization. Six of the required twelve hours must be taken in residence.

Rationale: To make the specialization in Japanese more flexible.

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