Linguistics Studies Program

Linguistics Minor Mission Statement:


Linguistics is the scientific study of language, which addresses its use; acquisition; structure at the sound, word, and sentence level; and relationship with culture and society. The interdisciplinary Linguistics Studies Minor at the College of Charleston allows students to acquire the basic foundation of the field, learn about diverse components of linguistics, and develop analytical skills. The course offerings include the structural study of language, historical evolution, function in cultural and social contexts, and connections to other disciplines.
