Minor In Linguistics

A minor in Linguistics is strongly recommended for all students interested in language, such as those majoring in English, foreign languages, Communication, or Journalism. A minor emphasizing linguistic analysis adds strength and breadth to majors in areas such as Mathematics and Computer Science, which require working with abstract formal structures. A minor emphasizing psycholinguistics is valuable for students in development and cognitive psychology, a minor emphasizing in sociolinguistics is useful for majors in Anthropology, Sociology, and International Relations, and a minor emphasizing second language acquisition would be appropriate for students interested in language teaching and Education. Linguistics is also a relevant and extremely useful minor for students in pre-law and Business programs.
