Any of ALC’s languages may be taken with the goal of satisfying the WCAS or Communication language proficiency requirement for all Northwestern undergraduates.
Affiliated programs are programs where ALC courses may be used to fill your home program/department major and minor requirements.
- Majors in Comparative Literary Studies - Some upper division ALC language courses may be used to fulfill this requirement. Students should consult the CLS Director of Undergraduate Studies and the instructor of the relevant course to determine course eligibility.
- The International Studies Adjunct Major follows the two-year WCAS language requirement. The ALC languages may be used to fulfill this requirement, as set by the WCAS foreign language proficiency requirement. The Asia region is one of five areas International Studies students can specialize in for the regional cluster. (Note: this major is open to students from all Northwestern University’s colleges and schools).
