Undergraduate students can major or minor in linguistics. At all levels, students are encouraged to pursue integrative research which crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries, and to take advantage of insights and methods both from within linguistics and from related fields.

How to declare a major or minor
- Set up an appointment to meet with the Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) for an orientation to the department and to discuss requirements and explore course options.
- During this meeting you will fill out the major or minor declaration form (PDF format) provided by the DUS. After the DUS has signed the form, the student will submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
