New majors in Linguistics in Fall 2021 (pending approval)

Mon, 03/22/21

We are excited to announce that we anticipate starting a B.A. and a B.S. in Linguistics in Fall 2021 (pending approval)! The linguistics degree will consist of 18 credit hours in required core courses (corresponding to six courses) and 12 credit hours in electives. The electives allow students to choose between two different majors in linguistics: (i) a General Linguistics major and (ii) a Linguistics and Languages major. Students can get a B.A. or B.S. degree in either major, depending on their coursework. Linguistics students will also have the option of co-majoring in linguistics and another program in the Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics. Please visit our website or contact the coordinator and advisor for Linguistics, Dr. Antje Muntendam (, for more information.
