Requirements for a Certificate in Linguistics
A. LIN 201/ENG 213 Introduction to Language and Linguistics
B. 4 additional courses
C. Senior independent work
A. LIN 201 is an introduction to the linguistic theory that forms the basis for most of the other courses offered by the Program in Linguistics. It is also a prerequisite for most advanced courses in Linguistics.
B. Any LIN course, 200-level or above, counts for this category. At least three of the four courses should bear the LIN designation or be cross-listed with Linguistics. Linguistics related courses in other departments and programs may be counted with the approval of the director.
C. Ideally some aspect of linguistics will be incorporated into the senior thesis. Other arrangements can be made if this is not practical.
