Linguistics Undergraduate Concentration

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.
