Welcome to Linguistics Program at Tech!

Linguistics at Tech is an interdisciplinary program with courses offered through the School of Modern Languages, the School of Psychology, and the School of Interactive Computing. The program offers a Linguistics minor (beginning Summer 2018) with two tracks: General Linguistics and Language Processing (pending approval) as well as a Linguistics certificate with the same two track options. 

The Linguistics program connects studies of the physical structures and mental processes involved in human language; the psychological and social/societal factors that enable humans to acquire, use, comprehend and produce language; and the application of computer science to the analysis and synthesis of language and speech. The program is designed for undergraduates who will enter a wide range of careers, such as language education, educational design, programming, human/computer interaction, and more!
