Linguistics

Welcome to Linguistics

An undergraduate degree in Linguistics provides opportunities to study the formal, functional and systemic nature of language and languages as both social and cognitive phenomena. Although a discipline in its own right, Linguistics has cognate relationships with a wide array of disciplines, suggested by the interdisciplinary nature of many of the courses in the program. Faculty members from Anthropology, English, French, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, and other disciplines participate.

Good News! This year we are offering LING 2330.1 Syntax in the fall term and LING 3330.2 Advanced Syntax in the winter term. This means you can meet your requirements for Syntax this year!
