Explore the Linguistics Program
Language is an integral part of human identity. As a Linguistics major, you’ll study language, from its inner parts — how do sounds, words and sentences work? — to its interactions with society on a local and global scale. You’ll learn about languages around the world, and the forces that cause them to change, to spread and to become endangered. You’ll explore the mystery of how we acquire languages. You’ll develop critical thinking and analytical skills, putting you on the path to a wide range of careers, from teaching to technology, health fields to law, and national security to international affairs.
