Language is an essential part of our life. Nothing characterizes humanity more than the ability to use language. Linguists analyze sounds, words, sentences, and texts. Linguists also make valuable contributions to practical fields such as K-12 teaching, second and foreign language teaching, language planning, translation, computer science, forensic linguistics, and language disorders.

Our degrees and programs develop intellectual skills that are essential to professional careers or advanced degrees. More information regarding the Department of Linguistics is available at this link.
