Declaring your major/minor in Linguistics (For Bi-Co Students)
Shizhe Huang (firstname.lastname@example.org), co-chair, Tri-Co Linguistics Department
Office: Stokes 118A1, Haverford
Email me to schedule a meeting. The subject line of the email should be:
Declaring major (or minor) in Linguistics—Your Name
All subsequent email communication related to major declaration 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.
Bryn Mawr students should choose LINGAB as the code for the major.
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.
If revisions are necessary, fill out another form and this time you can just drop it off in the mail tray outside my office.
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. Please do NOT fill out the part on Honors. That’s a departmental decision, not a personal decision.
This form is available at: http://www.swarthmore.edu/linguistics/forms
When done, please do the following:
- SAVE THE FORM AS IS PLUS YOUR NAME AT THE END OF THE FILE NAME
- Email the completed form to me (email@example.com) by following the same major declaration email thread
- And copy it to Ms. Dorothy Kunzig (firstname.lastname@example.org), who is the Office Manager of Linguistics at Swarthmore.
- In this email, please also include 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, Music, and German. Please note that at Haverford, a student must have a 3.7 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.
