No more than one first-year seminar may be counted toward the minor.
Approved language courses taken in UNC–Chapel Hill-sponsored study abroad programs may count in the minor. However, study abroad courses may not substitute for culture courses, which must be taken in the Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.
Placement credit (PL) may not be used to meet minor requirements.
