Languages and Literatures Concentration Professor Jarrod Hayes discusses the new concentration and its bene ts to students in Romance Languages and Literatures has been approved by the University We have long collected anecdotal evidence that a signi cant number of our students desired a concentration which would include more than one Romance language In response to this student demand we have developed a comparative concentration that will not only ensure maximum language pro ciency in both languages but also create a quotbridgequot between the two languages to encourage students both to discover and to make connections between them Nonetheless while the RLL concentration is heavier than most humanities concentrations we have kept the credits required for the concentration lower than might otherwise be the case by counting fewer lowerlevel courses than in other language based concentrations This encourages students to begin upperlevel coursework after the minimum prerequisites We have also created a concentration with enough exibility to give students the choice between treating the languages somewhat equally or having quotprimary and quotsecondaryquot languages I he Department is proud to announce that after several years of hard work its new concentration Professor Jarrod Hayes The requirements for the concentration consist of 42 credits divided into two general groups Part I consists of courses ta ken in the target languages and corresponds to courses students would take if they were concentrating in a single language Part II is designed as a quotbridgequot between the two languages fostering both practicallinguistic and intellectual components It is this part of the requirements that is the most distinctive aspect of the concentration and makes it unique in the country The requirement is one course in Romance philology or linguistics grounds the concentration in a basic understanding of the linguistic kinship between Romance languages Students also must take an elective which encourages them to explore the intellectual connections between the elds of French and Francophone studies Hispanic studies and Italian studies It will also foster both a comparative and interdisciplinary understanding of Romance studies All RLL concentrators will be enrolled in a senior seminar during the Fall semester of their senior year The seminar builds on students prior coursework to reinforce connections between courses in French Italian and Spanish offer an introduction to the methods of Romance Studies and explore potential topics for which crossing boundaries between languages might provide productive avenues of inquiry eg the panRomance Caribbean pre and earlymodern studies Mediterranean studies comparative fascism A major component of the senior seminar is the individual research project tailored to each student s linguistic competence For students opting to write an honors thesis in RLL the senior seminar constitutes the fall semester of work on the thesis This seminar is being offered for the rst time in fall 2008 Professor Jarrod Hayes center with his Senior Seminar in Romance Languages amp Literatures class RomLang 498 The RLL concentration offers a challenging concentration for advanced students Students who come to Michigan with training in more than one Romance language are especially urged to consider an RLL concentration Those with AP credits in French Italian or Spanish are also invited to do so for early planning can make it possible to concentrate in RLL even if starting the second language from scratch With some additional coursework in each language students may also use the RLL concentration for a major in one language and a minor in the other for the purposes ofa teaching certi cation in both languages Professor Enrique Garcia San toTomas with Spanish concentrator Lisa Stibitz For more information students should contact the RLL main of ce of the Department to make an appointment with
