Interdisciplinary Minor in Linguistics

An interdisciplinary Minor in Linguistics provides students with an opportunity to study linguistics within an interdisciplinary context.

The language industry is a leading employer globally, after government and the military. Students with linguistics knowledge pursue careers in many fields, including the following:
• Education
• Publishing
• Media
• Computer languages
• Voice analysis
• Communicative disorders
• Advertising
• Government
