Minor in Linguistics

The Minor in Linguistics will deepen your understanding of the nature of language. Linguistics addresses two fundamental questions: What is language? And how does it work? Courses in this minor explore issues such as language history, structure, and acquisition; dialects; literary language; and the relationship between language and society. The minor will be useful to you as you pursue careers in fields such as teaching, advertising, communications, computer applications, literature, law, government, and non-profit work.
