Language Science / Computational Linguistics
The Language Science Immersion
prepares students in the interdisciplinary scientific study and analysis of human language. Language
science is directly applicable to students interested in computing and media, human-computer
interaction, brain and cognition, language acquisition, human health, interpreting, relevant branches of
engineering, and policy studies. Students can complete the immersion irrespective of their skills in
languages other than English. In addition to a core course on linguistic principles, students can choose
electives covering technology of language, philosophy of language, and language in culture and society.
