Linguistics Concentration, BA (Interdisciplinary Programs Major)

Bethany K. Dumas, English, Chair

This concentration offers a broad exposure to the various fields of linguistics (including historical, descriptive, theoretical, and applied linguistics) along with an opportunity to study areas where linguistics overlaps with other disciplines such as psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, and speech pathology. The program of study is designed to prepare a student for graduate work in linguistics or related areas or to serve as a general survey of language and linguistics. The program of study provides the additional possibility of emphasizing the teaching of English as a Second Language for the student interested in language-related employment at the Bachelor of Arts level.

Students should consult program advisors early in planning a linguistics major or minor. LING 200  is highly recommended and 300-level courses should, if possible, be completed before 400-level courses are begun.
