Students and faculty in the Department of Linguistics share an abiding interest in the study of American Sign Language (ASL). The ongoing, innovative research carried out by the linguistics faculty and students is contributing substantially to what is known about the structure and use of sign languages. ASL is not only the subject of faculty and student research, but also the language of communication in the classroom.
The Minor in Linguistics offers undergraduate students in any major a basic foundation in linguistics and a structured exploration of a variety of topics in linguistics that are of direct relevance to their chosen fields of study. Contact the Undergraduate Program Coordinator to discuss how a Linguistics Minor can benefit you.
To continue and graduate with a Minor in Linguistics, a student must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 in all Linguistics courses.
