CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS OF THE MINOR FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE WITH A MAJOR IN MIDDLE EASTERN STUDIES IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

On page 260, in the section DEGREES, make the following changes:

Middle Eastern Studies

Major: Twenty-four semester hours of coursework in Middle Eastern studies, consisting of Middle Eastern Studies 301K and 301L and eighteen hours of upper-division coursework. Twelve hours of upper-division coursework in a Middle Eastern language may be counted toward the major. Students who wish to major in a Middle Eastern language may do so in the Department of Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures.

Students must complete the equivalent of at least two years of a Middle Eastern language (normally Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, or Turkish). Credit used to fulfill this requirement may also be used to fulfill the foreign language requirement for the Bachelor of Arts, Plan I.

Minor for Middle Eastern studies majors: Twelve semester hours, including at least six hours of upper-division coursework, in any one other field of study in the University. If the minor is in a foreign language other than that used to fulfill the Area A foreign language requirement, the twelve hours may be lower-division but must include at least six hours beyond course 507 or the equivalent. Six of the required hours must be taken in residence.

Rationale: Common practice in the College of Liberal Arts; encourages students to take an additional Middle Eastern language.
