ILVS Program Requirements
Language Preparation for the Major
All students, regardless of the areas of cultural emphasis, must take one foreign language through the eighth semester, pursued concurrently with the course work of the major.
Students may choose to take up to six semesters of a second foreign language, which will serve as the secondary area of cultural emphasis, for the course work of the major.
For all other students, English will be one of the two languages of the major's course work. These courses may be in English, American, and Anglophone literatures. In some cases - for example, when the major is structured as the exploration of a genre (the novel, the epic, etc.), the English-language component of the major may include foreign literatures in translation.
