Linguistics is the study of the nature and use of language and provides insight into the workings of the human mind. The major ties together studies in many areas, such as anthropology, child and family studies, computer science, English and other languages, geography, literary criticism, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, sociology, speech communication, speech pathology, and linguistics proper.
LIN 201 is an introduction to linguistic studies and is a prerequisite to the major and to advanced courses. It does not, however, count toward major requirements.
