Linguistics Undergraduate Program

Why Linguistics?

Linguistics is the scientific study of how human language works and is used. We ask questions like...

  • How do we best describe how language works?
  • How are human languages similar, and why are they so different?
  • How does language work in the mind?
  • How does language learning work for kids and adults?
  • What's the role of language in society?
  • How do languages change over time?
