Linguistics Minor Program Information

The goal of the Linguistics minor is to provide students with a distinct structured way of obtaining a foundation in the field, hence making them competitive for graduate study in linguistics and for graduate study and/or employment in fields where linguistics is a valued area, such as computer science, sociology, psychology, anthropology, and communications.

Courses are designed to provide students with a better understanding of the structure, history and use of language. Students graduating with a linguistic minor will be able to, among other things, explain the core concepts of the field, explain and apply the traditional methods of linguistic analysis in the core fields, identify features common to all human languages and identify social and political issues in which knowledge of linguistics is salient.

To learn more about the linguistics minor, please contact Professor Yousif Elhindi or (423) 439-5996.
