To add the Multilingual major, simply complete a “Major/Minor/Program Change” paper form in the dean’s office of your primary major. The LAS Dean’s Office is JH 237.
- Under “old plan”, list your current majors and minors.
- Under “new plan,” list all the majors and minors that you would like to show up on your transcripts. When listing your new multilingual major, list it as “Multilingual major (primary or secondary)” Then, write in three language sub-plans, based upon your languages of study.
Old: English – primary major
New: English – primary major
Multilingual – secondary major
Subplans – Spanish -first; German-second; Chinese-third
The sooner you declare the major, the sooner you can ensure you’re on track to complete all requirements.
Once the form has completed the approval process, Registration and Records will update your My.Butler portal. The Administrative Specialist in Modern Languages (MLLC) will email you with an acknowledgment of the added major, and assign an advisor. The advisor can help you find a selection of language courses that complement your other work being done at the University, as well as help you prepare for study abroad programs.
