Note for advisors and students:
There are no pre-requisites for LTAM Q-101, and freshmen are
welcome; however, this option requires a deep interest in the
peoples, language and culture of the Andes and adjacent lowlands of
South America, and should be especially valuable for students who
already have knowledge of one of the other languages spoken in South
America.  A student who reaches the fourth semester proficiency in
Inga will be allowed to use that proficiency for the College B.A.
language requirement.
