Minor in Linguistics

A minor in Linguistics is available to undergraduates majoring in any department. Students intending to minor in Linguistics should declare their intention to the director of the minor, Professor Colin Wilson, preferably by the beginning of junior year.

The requirements for the minor are:

  • One modern foreign language at the intermediate level, or two modern foreign languages at the elementary level
  • Six Courses in Linguistics. Four of these courses must be at the 300-level or above, excluding research and reading courses.

Cognitive Science majors may minor in linguistics only if linguistics is not one of their two focal areas.

Please note: General Requirements for Departmental Majors as well as the information above can be found in the current  Johns Hopkins University Catalog.

The Linguistics Society of America is a great resource for students wanting to know more about linguistics and its research/career possibilities.
