or LINGUIST 160. Introduction to Language Change
or, in advance consultation with the Linguistics undergraduate studies adviser, a course in historical linguistics or the history of a language.
- At least four other courses determined in advance consultation with the Linguistics undergraduate studies adviser. Students are encouraged to take at least one 200-level Linguistics course. Students may also choose to do independent work with a faculty member of their choice.
