What will I learn?

The major combines the basic courses of the general linguistics program with that of computer science, accommodating students who want professional preparation in computer science but do not necessarily have a strong interest in computer systems hardware. The goal of linguistics is the enrichment of knowledge about the nature, grammar, and history of human language. Linguistics is a theoretical discipline, akin to philosophy, anthropology, and cognitive psychology.

The Linguistics and Computer Science major has the following learning outcomes:

Ability to apply critical thinking skills through linguistic data analysis in phonetics, phonology, syntax, and at least one other subfield

Understanding of advanced theoretical concepts and/or analytical techniques in at least one subfield
