1

This program requires 5 semesters of study in two languages other than English, divided between an non-Indo European language and an Indo-European languages. One of the two languages of study is taken to the 201 level. Students are encouraged to pursue language study in a third language. 

2

The major in linguistics is offered in collaboration with the Summer Institute of Linguistics - University of North Dakota (SIL-UND), the organization that provides training in linguistics for Wycliffe translators and missionaries. Three years of coursework are completed on campus and two summers at SIL-UND in Grand Forks (the summers after their sophomore and junior years at Bethel University). 

3

Students are encouraged to have an extended immersion experience abroad in a foreign country where their native language is not the primary language. 

4

Student must meet with director of internship and placement at least two terms before beginning internship.

This program assumes the student will use ANT 200U to meet the General Education World Cultures (U) requirement. All language courses 102 level and higher will meet the Second Language General Education requirement. 

If a student continues a language in which they have previous experience, the placement exam determines which class is appropriate for their level of language competency. The student takes this class during their first semester at Bethel. 

Most financial aid packages stipulate 12 credits/semester; Minnesota state grants are reduced when credit load falls below 15 credits/semester. (Interim credits may be split between fall and spring for state grant purposes only.)

Check with the Financial Planning Office to see if any aid is available for summers at SIL-UND.
