# This plan assumes that students have completed UK Core requirements by the end of Fall of the second year. Additional courses may be needed if areas of UK Core have not been completed.

¤ Students who have taken at least 2 years of a language in high school can complete the A&S Foreign Language Requirement with 3 college semesters of a different language. Also note that if you take a foreign language placement exam, you may be exempt from 1 or more of the beginning semesters of that language. Any language sequence may be used to satisfy the foreign language requirements.

* 6 hours of 'free' electives - that do not count toward any other requirement - must be taken. Additional electives may be required to earn the required minimum of 120 hours.

o Track Electives and Any Area Electives may be used count toward the appropriate subfield to which they belong: A&S Humanities, A&S Social Science, or A&S Natural Science credit.  Therefore the extra hours of electives may need to be taken to fulfill requirements such as 6 credit hours of electives, 120 credit hours, and/or 39 hours of 300-level coursework.

∞     Courses used to count for UK Core cannot be used to count toward the BLS major.

#       Students must complete 90 hours of coursework in the College of Arts and Sciences.
