About the Program
The minor in linguistics is designed for students who are fascinated by language.
Linguistics investigates language as a self-contained system (sounds, words, sentences), as a component of culture and society, and as a cognitive and neurological operation of individuals. It also intersects with a range of academic disciplines whose subject matter, in one way or another, involves language. Therefore, this minor is particularly valuable for students whose primary field of study is language, sociology, anthropology, music, psychology, philosophy, or literature.
Students interested in the minor should submit a completed Application for a Program of Minor Study to the School of Humanities main office.
