Minor in Linguistics
Emphasizing both cognitive understanding and analytical skills, the undergraduate minor in Linguistics provides an introduction to the scientific study of language, as a supplement to a student’s primary academic concentration. Its purpose is to provide a foundation for a graduate degree or other further education in linguistics or related fields, and to prepare students for informed decision-making about language-related issues in their daily lives.
The total requirement for the minor is 19-20 credits, including the following:
|Required Core Courses
|Introduction to Linguistics
|History of the English Language
|Two 101/102/201/202 foreign language courses
|One 101/102/201/202 foreign language course
|Language and Culture
|Note: Of the English courses in the linguistics minor, only English 209 may also count towards the English major. The remaining English courses will not count for the major if being applied to the linguistics minor.
