Linguistics Minor

Undergraduates in any major can minor in linguistics. Cognitive science majors may minor in linguistics only if linguistics is not one of their two focal areas.

Below is a summary of requirements, however it is advised that students refer to the Academic Catalog for their entering year for the formalized list of requirements.

  • One foreign language through the intermediate level OR two foreign languages at the elementary level
  • Six courses in linguistics that fall under the linguistics focal area
    • Four of these must be at the 300-level or above, excluding research and readings.
  • Receive a C- or better for all coursework taken to satisfy linguistics minor requirements.
