B.A. in Linguistics

Admission to the Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics is currently suspended. 

Linguistics, the study of language, concerns itself with all aspects of how people use and acquire language. Linguists focus on many different facets of language, from the physical properties of the sound waves in utterances to the intentions of speakers towards others in conversations. Our department offers both a minor and major in linguistics where you'll come to discover how languages are structured, how languages are used, and how they change.
