Minoring in Linguistics

The Department of Linguistics offers a minor in linguistics which gives the student both a grounding in the basics of linguistic analysis and the opportunity to pursue areas of special interest. The minor in linguistics requires a total of at least 28 credits in linguistics coursework, all of which must be taken on a graded basis. While it is assumed that students will take the courses in linguistic analysis listed below, under special circumstances substitutions are possible. Students should confer with the undergraduate advisor in order to secure permission to pursue an alternative program of study leading to the minor.
