Students do not require special permission to take any course offered through the Department of Linguistics, subject to the University requirement that only courses numbered 5000 and higher can be counted toward a graduate degree. Naturally, the advisor should always play a role in the selection of the curriculum.
Courses offered by other departments must be approved by the graduate chair, generally in consultation with the student's advisor. The following courses are pre-approved as having relevant content and do not require individual permission from the graduate chair; but since they are outside the department and can be demanding, it is especially important to discuss the best choice with the advisor.
