Ever wonder why we speak the way we do? Our linguistics program goes beyond the surface and examines the very construction of language, the mechanics of speech and attempts to explain why language varies among humans. You’ll explore the rich make-up of speech including the sounds we make, phonetics and more. You’ll also dive into sentence structures, what words are made of, and discuss the forms of text and conversations.
Whether you’re thinking of a career in speech language pathology, education, or language teaching, our major program in linguistics is your pathway to success. If you’re seeking a more intensive linguistic journey, or plan to pursue graduate studies, our specialist program has you covered.
