Linguistics Minor


Language plays a crucial role in almost every aspect of human life; it is fundamental to commerce, government, education, science, technology, the arts, and the mass media. The field of linguistics is devoted to the study of language, its nature, its uses, and its limitations. Because of its wide relevance, undergraduate study in linguistics can be a springboard to careers in many areas, from education to computer science.

Program Requirements


Minimum number of credits required for the minor: 18

Note: Students majoring in general Linguistics or in Linguistics with concentrations in Speech and Language Science, French Linguistics, or Spanish Linguistics may not complete the Linguistics minor. Students majoring in Linguistics with concentrations in ASL Linguistics or in ASL/English Interpreting may complete the Linguistics minor, but they need to complete at least three courses in the minor that do not overlap with requirements for the major.
