Linguistics Major

Additional Information on the Linguistics program

The major in linguistics consists of ten courses selected from the list below. The student should take at least one course in each of the following areas: phonology, syntax, language history, and language and thought. As courses are distributed among various departments, the student must consult with the Program Adviser in selecting courses to fulfill this distribution requirement. No language courses taken to fulfill the college proficiency requirement may be counted toward the major.

Students majoring in linguistics who elect to graduate with a B.S. degree must have credit for two mathematics courses: a) one calculus course, MATH 121 or equivalent; and b) one statistics course MATH 123, or a higher level class in statistics.
