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


A fifth course will be selected from the student's Area F requirements in consultation with the advisor for the professional writing minor.
