The Linguistics Department offers a major in Linguistics, a minor in Linguistics, a Senior Honor’s Thesis, and a five-year Accelerated Bachelor/Master’s program. It also participates in the Interdisciplinary Minor in Cognitive Science, allowing students to combine the study of language with the broader study of the human mind. Courses in Linguistics also satisfy the social science general education requirement.
