Language and Area Studies

For students who wish to focus on the culture and history of a country of langauge group, it is possible to pursue a Concentration in Area Studies. Students complete three upper-division courses in one language/literature, plus two related courses (in history, art, economics, etcetera).

Planning is particularly imporant for this concentration, since related course offerings for a given country are limited. An Area Studies Concentration is possible in Classics, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
