Moderation and Senior Project
LAIS majors moderate both into a primary divisional program and into LAIS, usually through a concurrent Moderation, by fulfilling the primary program's requirements and the following LAIS requirements. Prior to or concurrent with Moderation, students are required to take at least two designated LAIS core courses, which are listed below. After Moderation, students are expected to take two additional elective courses and one 300-level seminar; these courses may be listed primarily in another discipline and cross-listed with LAIS. At least one and preferably two of the five required LAIS courses should be taken outside the student's home division (e.g., majors in the Social Studies or Arts Divisions must take a course in the Division of Languages and Literature, and vice versa). The final requirement is the successful completion of a Senior Project in a primary divisional program and LAIS. This project must have a geographical, linguistic, or conceptual link with Latin America, Spain, or Portugal, and have at least one LAIS faculty member on the program board.
