Effective Fall 2011

A minor in Linguistics is not open to students with a concentration in the Department of Linguistics.

Many students in departments across campus develop an interest in language as they pursue their studies, and wish to learn more about the ways in which human language informs and defines human experience. Other career aspirations, however, make it difficult for them to have a full concentration in Linguistics. The academic minor in Linguistics is offered to these undergraduates who wish to enrich their education with extended study in the nature of human language. Such inquiry is regularly sought as a support to the study of a specific language and its literature, as an adjunct to other aspects of developmental and cognitive psychology, or as a tools for concentrators in other cognate disciplines.

Students wishing to pursue an academic minor in Linguistics must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with a faculty member of the Undergraduate Committee of the Linguistics Department.

Prerequisites to the Academic Minor

LING  209/PSYCH 242 or LING 210 or 212   is a prerequisite for a linguistics academic minor, but does not count toward the academic minor.

Academic Minor Program

15 credits in Linguistics or in courses cross-listed with Linguistics, distributed as follows:

  2. Linguistics electives: Nine credits in Linguistics, at the 300-level or above, chosen in consultation with and approved by the academic minor advisor.
