An interdepartmental minor program in linguistics is available to students interested in the scientific analysis and comparison of languages or in improving their theoretical understanding of language in connection with practical language study. Students who might be interested in a linguistics minor would usually major in a subject such as anthropology, communication, computer science, english, foreign languages, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and any education curriculum. Completion of the linguistics minor adds strength to such majors.
For the minor in linguistics the student must take LIN201 Introduction to Linguistics and, by advisement, fifteen credits in courses from among those listed in the minor plan. Students must complete at least nine credits from outside his/her major department toward the linguistics minor.
