Linguistics and Communication Track

Linguistics and Communication Track

Undergraduate English majors at UD may decide to take courses mainly in linguistics in the final year of the B.A. Program. Students may choose the Linguistics and Communication Track in the spring semester of the second year of their undergraduate studies.
As a student of this track, you will study language from different perspectives, including research in the fields of syntax, semantics, child language, computational linguistics, sociolinguistics and second language acquisition. You will also be encouraged to seek out opportunities to conduct research with faculty, participate in various talent management programs and engage in the rich academic and social life of our department. As of Spring 2021 our students can also develop communicative skills by
working with students from Indiana University Bloomington (USA) on Zoom in the framework of a course that they complete in the track.
By completing courses in our track, you can also prepare for graduate studies in our M.A. in Linguistics.

Students must complete 9 electives from the list of courses below.
