Six hours of composition
Three hours of English or modern and classical languages literature or other approved substitute.
Liberal Arts Elective
The Liberal Arts Elective chosen by Linguistics majors should be one course chosen from this list of courses, to satisfy prerequisites elsewhere in the major: PHIL 1301 or PHIL 3321.
Six hours (MATH 1301 or higher).
Eight hours in lab science (biology, chemistry, geology and/or physics).
Three hours from architecture, art, dance, music, or theatre arts.
The Social and Cultural Studies Requirement will be satisfied by designated courses which have been approved by the Undergraduate Assembly. For a list of approved courses, contact the University Advising Center or the student's major department.
Students majoring in Linguistics demonstrate competency in oral communication by successfully completing LING 3345. The department advisor must certify completion of this requirement.
Computer Use Competency
Students majoring in Linguistics demonstrate competency in computer use by successfully completing the sophomore level of a Foreign Language course when taken at UT Arlington or by taking LING 4330. If neither of these conditions are met, consult the advisor for ways to satisfy this computer competency requirement. The department advisor must certify completion of this requirement.
Sufficient number of hours to complete the total hours required for a degree.
Three hours of linguistics courses at the 2000 level; 3311, 3330, 3340, 4370; either 3345 or PHIL 2311; either 4301 or 4303; 12 additional hours of linguistics courses at 3000/4000 level. The 12 additional hours of linguistics courses at the 3000/4000 level may include linguistics courses offered by other departments, with approval of the department advisor, provided those courses do not satisfy either the Enhanced Language Requirement or the Minor. Under no circumstances can courses used for the Enhanced Language Requirement or Minor be used to satisfy requirements for linguistics major courses.
This will be satisfied by the student enrolling in and earning at least a 2.0 in three hours of credit from a departmental course designated as "service-learning." A course may satisfy both the service-learning requirement and the hours requirements for the major. (For example, LING 3311 if taught as service-learning could satisfy the major requirement and the service-learning requirement.) The Department will maintain a list of courses and section numbers by semesters/year (i.e., Fall 2010) for verification of this requirement, and the department advisor must certify completion of this requirement.
Enhanced Language Requirement
The enhanced language requirement consists of coursework that covers the first year, second year, and third year levels of instruction in a single language. This requirement is equivalent of three years of language instruction, up to and including six hours at the 3000-level in a single language, where that language is not English and is not the student's home language. Classical, modern, signed or indigenous (for example, Native American) languages are all permissible languages to satisfy this requirement.
18 hours in an allied field (psychology, anthropology, philosophy, education, computer science, classical/modern languages, or another field approved by the undergraduate advisor. A student may choose to use the same 18 hours to satisfy simultaneously the enhanced language requirement and the minor requirement.
Sufficient to reach the total hours required for the degree.
120 hours, at least 36 of which must be 3000/4000 level.
