Program Requirements

It is strongly recommended that Ling 198, a 2-credit-hour course, be taken early in a student's major. This course is recommended to help Applied English Linguistics majors focus on specific educational and occupational goals and to identify the career options or educational opportunities available to them. The course will introduce them to the resources needed for accessing information about graduate schools, internships, careers, and career development.
requirement 3
Complete university course work (or the equivalent) to a 200-level or higher in any single foreign language, including American Sign Language. (This requirement varies for Spanish. See the Humanities College Advisement Center.) The language for this requirement may be the same language used to satisfy the GE Foreign Language option, but note that the GE Foreign Language option may require more coursework than this requirement from the Applied English Linguistics major. For non-native speakers of English, the university TOEFL requirement satisfies this requirement for the Applied English Linguistics major. A language relevant to the historical development of English is strongly recommended, namely Latin, French, German, or Classical Greek.
requirement 4 Complete 6.0 hours from the following course(s)
Courses NOT chosen to complete requirement 4 may be used to complete requirement 5.
requirement 5
Primary Track: Within one option, complete 12 hours in courses not chosen for requirement 4 or 6.
Note: See minor advisor to discuss how to obtain a LINGC minor: inguistics.byu.edu/department-advisors; note that up to 9 credit hours from the ELING major can also be counted toward the LINGC minor.

requirement 6
Secondary Track: Within one option, complete 6 hours in courses not chosen for requirement 4 or requirement 5. Secondary track must be different from primary track used for requirement 5.
