Declaring your major/minor in Linguistics (For Bi-Co Students)
Instructions from Shizhe Huang (firstname.lastname@example.org)
For those students who plan to major/minor in Linguistics or Linguistics and Languages, please do the following:
Email Shizhe Huang (email@example.com) to schedule a meeting. The subject line of the email should be: Declaring major (or minor) in Linguistics—Your Name.
All subsequent email communication should follow this single thread.
You should attach an (un)official transcript to the email so that I can consult it while checking your major plan.
Before the meeting, please fill the major declaration form issued by the Registrar’s Office at Bryn Mawr or Haverford as much as you can and bring it to our meeting. During the meeting we will go over your plan. I will sign the Registrar’s form at the end of the meeting if everything is in order so that you can submit it to the Registrar’s Office.
At this point, Bryn Mawr’s major plan is on BioNic, which is NOT open to Haverford faculty. The Registrar at Bryn Mawr is working to create access for me at this very moment (Feb. 7, 2014) so I expect to have access to it soon. Meanwhile, the paper form with my signature will do, which will allow your application for Study Abroad to go through if that is your plan. If you still have questions, please let me know. If you and I have met but no hard copy of your plan has been signed by me, please drop off a hard copy in my mailtray (Stokes 118A1) and send an email notice and I’ll sign it within two work days or sooner.
After our meeting, you must go online and complete the Linguistics Major Plan that the Tri-Co Linguistics department requires all potential majors/minors to submit. It's available at: www.swarthmore.edu/SocSci/Linguistics/xling14.html
When done, SAVE THE FORM AS IS PLUS YOUR NAME AT THE END OF THE FILE NAME, and email the completed form to Dorothy Kunzig (firstname.lastname@example.org) AND Shizhe Huang (email@example.com) along with your (un)official transcript so that both of us have the same documents on file. It is VERY important for a Tri-Co department to keep an accurate and complete record of students from all three colleges. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
- We welcome double majors. Over the last few years, we have seen an increase in the number of students who double major in Linguistics and the following majors: Computer Science, Psychology, Philosophy, Mathematics, Anthropology, Sociology, English, and German. Please note that at Haverford, a student must have a 3.5 GPA in order to qualify for double majoring. At Bryn Mawr, there is no such specific stipulation. But if you are a Bryn Mawr student, you should discuss your double major plan with your dean.
If you have any questions, please contact Shizhe Huang (firstname.lastname@example.org)
