Subject: History of English Course Prerequisites

I need information on whether prerequisites (such as Intro to
Linguistics) are required for the History of English course at various
universities. I'd be gratefulful to anyone who could provide
information to me on this topic. My institution is trying to
establish a prerequisite course in the Study of Language prior to
History of Language and would like to hear how your department
handles this issue.

Name of University:
Name of Dept.:
Name of Course: (History of English)
Course Number (for History of English)
Prerequisites for Course: (Give Name and Course Number)

Also, answer the following questions:
Are you satisfied with the present arrangement of a course
requirement for this course? Why or why not? Comment especially
if there is no course requirement.

Are any members of your dept. contemplating or in the process of
requiring a prerequisite for this course?

Other comments on the teaching/staffing of this course:
