Advising for Dual Languages Major

We suggest students pursue at least their primary language during their first year at Pacific and begin their second (and third, if desired) language(s) no later than the fall of their second year at Pacific. Note that some languages only offer 101 in the fall, so they should be mindful of this as they enroll. Study abroad is required in the primary language (usually during junior year).

Whenever possible, students are encouraged to study abroad for two semesters--one semester in a country of their primary language, one semester in a country of their secondary language. A year-long senior thesis is required for students. The student and the faculty member supervising the thesis should agree upon the language in which the student will write the thesis.
