The Language and Linguistics Concentration provides students with the tools necessary
to investigate language. Students confront the questions, theories, and methods of
exploring language as a system. In addition to the theoretical nature of language study,
students explore the real-life implications of language for literature, English as
a Second Language (ESL), composition, language development, and the social dimensions
of language and linguistics.
