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

On page 262, in the section DEGREES, make the following changes:

Scandinavian

Major:
Twenty-one semester hours of Scandinavian, including (1) Scandinavian 301; (2) no more than nine semester hours of coursework in language and literature chosen from Scandinavian 323, 358, 369, and 373; (3) no more than nine semester hours of coursework in culture chosen from topics of Scandinavian 327; and (4) no more than six semester hours of coursework in society chosen from topics of Scandinavian 335. In addition, the student must [complete at least two years of] use either Danish, Norwegian, or Swedish to fulfill the Area A foreign language requirement.

Rationale: To clarify the language requirement; the languages specified are taught only in accelerated format, so the use of the word "years" is misleading when used to describe the requirement.
