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

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

Persian Language and Literature

Major:
Eighteen semester hours of upper-division coursework in Persian, including nine hours in Persian 329, Topics in Persian Language and Literature [(Topic 1: Ferdowsi's Shâhnâmeh), 329 (Topic 2: Sa'di's Golestân), and 329 (Topic 3: Hâfez's Ghazals)]. Only courses using texts in the original Persian may be counted toward the major. At least one year of Arabic is also required.

Minor for Persian language and literature majors: Twelve semester hours, consisting of (1) six hours of upper-division coursework in any one other field of study in the University; and (2) Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures 312K and 312L. Six of the required hours must be taken in residence.

Rationale: To broaden our students' options for completing the major, rather than restrict them by requiring specific topics that are not always offered.

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