Welcome to the Department of Linguistics
The Department of Linguistics is home to a diverse community who come together for a shared interest in human language, the most crucial and fundamental trait that makes us human.
Here you will find courses in linguistics (general linguistics and applied linguistics) as as well modern languages. We teach Korean, Japanese and Mandarin Chinese – three of the world’s most widely spoken languages with deep and rich cultural traditions. Our award-wining faculty are committed to student-centered pedagogy and we pursue linguistic research situated in real-world questions and applications. Through teaching with innovations, we are committed to helping students gain access to a wide spectrum of opportunities to live an enriched life professionally and personally.
We are part of the School of Literatures, Cultural Studies and Linguistics
