Double Majors

NELC welcomes and encourages students majoring in other departments to opt for a second major in NELC.  Prospective double-majors should consult the relevant Concentration Adviser for help in arranging their program and for coordinating the two majors. 

Students with language proficiency in Hebrew or Arabic may petition to reduce the second major requirement to a minimum of 12 c.u. Note that theses in other majors may not be substituted for NELC’s concentration paper requirement.
