The “specialties” may be taken in any order, but no more than two specialties should be taken in a semester.

For the interpretation segment, the successful completion of BLS 610 and BLS 611 is a requirement to continue with the segment. The first four courses (BLS 610, 611, 612 and 613) must be taken in the order listed (except as noted later), the remaining three “specialties” (BLS 614, 615 and 616) may be taken in any order. A student may take the first two courses (BLS 610 and 611) simultaneously. Equally, the following two courses (BLS 612 and 613) may also be taken simultaneously. No more than two specialty courses should be taken during the same semester.
