Linguistics BA

Human language is a great mystery. How do we use it so well without any lessons? How do we manage to make ourselves understood? It requires a complex coordination that we manage on a daily basis. The linguistics BA major will provide you with basic conceptual tools for talking about human language in an informed way. You will learn how linguists analyze human language by breaking it down into different levels of structure. You will learn to discern patterns and regularities in language that you didn't know existed. Students graduating with a BA in linguistics are ready for a variety of careers as well as further work in MA or PhD programs, as well as professional schools.
