Language Science

The Language Science minor provides students with the knowledge of how sounds, structure, and meaning work in human language, and the skills needed to apply that knowledge in disciplines such as computing, psychology, interpreting, and engineering. Students are encouraged to pursue their individual career interests in language, from the relationship between language and culture to the cognitive underpinnings of language to the tools and methods powering language technology in artificial intelligence.

To complete the minor, a student takes fifteen semester credit hours distributed over five courses. Students take one required course, Introduction to Language Science, one foundations course, and three electives. Please view the flyer to determine which classes are applicable to the immersion.
