Academic Catalog August 2008 - August 2009 Undergraduate and Graduate
You may pursue the study of two languages with this extended language major. To earn this degree, complete at least 120 units of coursework, which we describe in the sections that follow:
at least 35 units of liberal studies requirements. Be aware that you may not use courses with the prefix of your primary or secondary languages to satisfy these liberal studies requirements.
at least 53 units of major requirements
elective courses, if needed, to reach an overall total of at least 120 units
Be aware that some courses required for your degree may have prerequisites that you must also take. Check the courses in the appropriate subject. (You may be able to count these prerequisites toward your liberal studies or general elective credit.)
Also be aware that you must complete NAUís diversity requirements by taking two 3-unit courses, one in ethnic diversity and one in global awareness. These courses may be used to meet other requirements within your academic plan if you choose them carefully. Click here for a list of the available diversity courses.
Also be aware that NAU requires that at least 30 units of the courses you take for your degree must be upper-division courses (those numbered 300 and above).
Finally, please note that you may be able to use some courses to meet more than one requirement; however, you must still meet the total of at least 120 units to graduate. Contact your advisor for details.
For this degree, take a total of 53 units, with at least:
30 units in the primary language, excluding courses numbered 101 and 102
20 units in the secondary language, excluding courses numbered 101 and 102
Within these units, take:
one of FRE 303W or 304W; GER 304W; or SPA 304W, 311W, or 312W, any of which meets NAUís junior writing requirement
one of FRE 403C, 404C, or 485C; GER 406C; or SPA 451C, 452C, 460C, or 480C, any of which meets NAUís senior capstone requirement
Consult with your advisor in choosing the courses you take in each language. You must get this student individualized plan approved as early as possible to ensure that you graduate in a timely fashion; please be aware that your advisor must approve these 53 units of coursework.
Please be aware that you may only take lower-level courses in your primary and secondary languages if you have not already taken advanced coursework in these languages. For instance, after youíve completed 200-level courses in one of these languages, you canít take courses at the 100 level in the same language; after completing a 300-level courses you canít take 100- or 200-level courses.
Additional coursework is required, if, after you have met the previously described requirements, you have not yet completed a total of 120 units of credit.
You may take these remaining courses from any academic areas, using these courses to pursue your specific interests and goals. We encourage you to consult with your advisor to select the courses that will be most advantageous to you. (Please note that you may also use prerequisites or transfer credits as electives if they werenít used to meet major, minor, or liberal studies requirements.)
