* Offered infrequently

Most departments periodically offer special courses (not listed in catalog) under "0" ending numbers; check specific titles at time of their offering. Courses in a language will not count if they are in the principle language of the student. Exceptions allowed: CHI 252, 255; FRE 366, 411; GEO 250, 261, 304, 305; JPN 172, 254; RUS 137, 255, 256; and SPN 433; so long as they are not used toward language requirement hours. Most "regional" courses taken in overseas study programs can be credited toward the foreign area emphasis component of the major; however, students should consult the Director prior to departure to determine which courses are appropriate.
