Language and Linguistics Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

The language and linguistics minor offers concepts about, theories of, and analytical techniques in natural language. It represents an intellectual discipline in itself and simultaneously serves the interests of future teachers, students of literature and writing, and others who have a continuing fascination with language as language. The minor is especially complementary for majors in anthropology, English, foreign language teaching, modern languages, philosophy, psychology, sociology, speech communication, and technical communication. The minor requires students to engage in vigorous, progressively more explicit and precise analysis and synthesis as they examine facts and fallacies about the miracle of language. There are two concentrations in the Language/Linguistics minor, one focusing primarily on linguistics (Linguistics Concentration) and the other including a 3-semester language component (Language Concentration).
