Linguistics is the scientific study of language: how it is structured, used, and learned. The interdisciplinary Minor in Linguistics is designed to enable students interested in the nature of language and its use in society to enrich a degree in any field, including modern languages, communication, anthropology, education, English, computer science, psychology, writing and rhetoric, and more.
Students take two core courses and four electives. In order to ensure the interdisciplinary nature of the minor, no more than two elective courses may come from the same program.
*MOL 220 is cross-listed with CMNS 221, ENG 222, WRD 220, and ANT 390. Other topics in anthropology taught as ANT 390 do not apply to this minor.
Other courses involving the study of language may also be counted as electives on a case-by-case basis in order to make the minor maximally applicable to students from all courses of study. Such substitutions could include relevant topics courses, independent study courses, or the courses listed below. Substitutions must be approved by the Program Director.
