Students in the intensive major complete three courses each in two non-anglophone literatures, in all of which the literature is read in the original language. Three of these courses take the place of the three electives in the nonintensive major. Intensive majors must also demonstrate proficiency at the L5 level in one of their languages and at the L4 level or above in the other. Students taking the intensive major in three national literatures must take two courses each in two national literatures and three in a third. They must demonstrate proficiency at the L5 level in the language of their principal literature, and at the L4 level or above in the other two.
