The details for the joint majors in language and Linguistics can be reached by selecting them from the menu on the right.

It is also possible to combine a major or minor in Linguistics and a major or minor in something else (including, of course, a language/literature). For a major + minor combination, a maximum of 2 courses can count simultaneously toward both programs. So, if you were to major in Linguistics (e.g.), requiring 12 courses, and minor in French (e.g.), requiring 6 courses, you could, in fact, complete both programs with only 16 courses (rather than 18), if 2 of those were to count toward both programs.

To combine two majors, a maximum of 5 courses can double-count toward both majors. So, one could, in principle, complete a double major in French and Linguistics with only 19 (rather than 24) courses.

Clarification: The joint major is just one major, with requirements from both sections contributing to the degree: these dual majors can be competed with a total of 13 courses. This is different from a double major, for which the complete requirements for two different majors must be satisfied (albeit with some overlap allowed).

If you are considering combining the study of linguistics and of one or more languages, it is strongly recommended that you meet with an advisor to discuss the various options for doing this. The Director of Undergraduate Studies will be happy to help.
