Notes:

*Graduate courses used to satisfy both graduate and undergraduate degree requirements.
^Four semesters of a first foreign language (satisfies Core Area VI, Franklin Foreign Language requirement).
^^Course chosen for Area IV should also satisfy either the Franklin Fine Arts/Philosophy/ Religion requirement or the Franklin Literature requirement.
^^^Two semesters of a second foreign language; must be from a different major language family than the language in first year fall (satisfies Core Area VI).
^^^^Graduate-level LING electives shown here are used to satisfy sample primary and secondary areas of concentration in Phonetics/Phonology and Sociolinguistics. Students may design their programs around different areas of concentration of their own choosing, in consultation with their major professor and the Graduate Coordinator.

Total A.B. hours (including 12 hours counted simultaneously towards M.A. degree): 120 + 1 hour P.E.

Total M.A. hours (excluding LING 7000 Master's Research and other non-required courses): 32
Note that the dual A.B./M.A. requires only one semester of Colloquium, rather than two, since this course is only offered in the Spring semester. Students are encouraged to attend Colloquium in Year 4, prior to admission to the graduate program.

This is a sample program of study:
• Students are advised to take LING 3060 and LING 3150 as soon as possible after completion of LING 2100, but they do not necessarily have to be taken in Year Two as shown here.
• Students should choose Core courses that simultaneously satisfy Franklin College and University degree requirements whenever possible.
• Students should consult with the Linguistics Dual-Degree Pathway Advisor and the Graduate Coordinator about designing their graduate program of study, which may focus on different areas of concentration than shown in the sample here (see note 4 above.)

This sample program of study does not assume any advanced placement credit in foreign languages or other areas.
