School of Humanities Departments Veto Language Requirements
Departments are now free to decide what their language requirement will be since school wide requirements have been stopped.
English majors will still have to take another language (good, b/c English is 40% of total enrollment in Humanities, they total 900 majors).
The Departments of Art History, Philosophy, Visual studies, Film and Media will all reject language requirements.
History is still undecided about the language requirement as of last faculty meeting on 1/11.
Spanish is expected to lose 10% of enrollment in undergrad courses as a result of these Humanities departments' decision to do away with the requirement.
