General Institute Requirements (GIRs)

The General Institute Requirements include a Communication Requirement that is integrated into both the HASS Requirement and the requirements of each major; see details below.

Summary of Subject Requirements Subjects
Science Requirement 6
Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) Requirement [between three and five subjects can be from the Departmental Program]; at least two of these subjects must be designated as communication-intensive (CI-H) to fulfill the Communication Requirement. 8
Restricted Electives in Science and Technology (REST) Requirement 2
Laboratory Requirement (12 units) [can be satisfied by either 24.905[J] or 24.909 in the Departmental Program] 1
Total GIR Subjects Required for SB Degree 17
Physical Education Requirement
Swimming requirement, plus four physical education courses for eight points.

Departmental Program

Choose at least two subjects in the major that are designated as communication-intensive (CI-M) to fulfill the Communication Requirement.

Required SubjectsUnits
24.900Introduction to Linguistics12
24.901Language and Its Structure I: Phonology12
24.902Language and Its Structure II: Syntax (CI-M)12
24.903Language and Its Structure III: Semantics and Pragmatics12
24.918Workshop in Linguistic Research (CI-M)12
Select one of the following three Linguistic Analysis subjects:12
Field Methods in Linguistics (CI-M) 1
Advanced Topics in Linguistic Analysis (CI-M)
Language Variation and Change (CI-M)
Select one of the following three Philosophy subjects:12
Minds and Machines
Logic I
Introduction to Philosophy of Language (CI-M)
Select one of the following five Experimental Results subjects:12
Language Acquisition
Laboratory in Psycholinguistics 1
The Linguistic Study of Bilingualism
Abnormal Language
Linguistic Phonetics
Restricted Electives
A coherent program of three additional subjects from linguistics, philosophy, or a related area36
Units in Major132
Unrestricted Electives 284-120
Units in Major That Also Satisfy the GIRs(36-72)
Total Units Beyond the GIRs Required for SB Degree180

The units for any subject that counts as one of the 17 GIR subjects cannot also be counted as units required beyond the GIRs.

1

Students who do not use 24.905[J] or 24.909 to satisfy the Laboratory Requirement may count a sixth subject from within the Departmental Program toward the HASS Requirement.

2

This chart has been calculated based on an overlap of 36 units (three subjects) between the HASS General Institute Requirement and the departmental requirements. Students who develop a program of study with more overlap will be able to select more unrestricted electives to meet the number of total units beyond the GIRs required for an SB degree.

Units in Major132
Unrestricted Electives 384-120
Units in Major That Also Satisfy the GIRs(36-72)
Total Units Beyond the GIRs Required for SB Degree180

The units for any subject that counts as one of the 17 GIR subjects cannot also be counted as units required beyond the GIRs.

1

Students may select a logic subject from another department (e.g., Mathematics) with the approval of their major advisor.

2

Students who do not use 24.905[J] to satisfy the Laboratory Requirement may count a sixth subject from within the Departmental Program toward the HASS Requirement.

3

This chart has been calculated based on an overlap of 36 units (three subjects) between the HASS General Institute Requirement and the departmental requirements. Students who develop a program of study with more overlap will be able to select more unrestricted electives to meet the number of total units beyond the GIRs required for an SB degree.
