Dual Majors and Minors in Linguistics

Communication Sciences and Disorders students can also major in Linguistics even though we are in the same department. The only restriction is that a given course cannot be used to satisfy both major and minor requirements. A suggested minor in general Linguistics is described below. Students with particular interests may substitute other courses with their advisor’s approval. To receive credit for a minor, students must register the minor with the Registrar’s Office.

18 credit Minor in Linguistics for students majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders:

The following three courses:
LCD 101: Introduction to Language ** [see NOTE]
LCD 120: Syntax I
LCD 220: Syntax II

A minimum of two courses from the following:
LCD 209: Language and Mind
LCD 240: Second Language Acquisition
LCD 306: Semantics and Pragmatics
LCD 320: Syntactic Theory

** NOTE: LCD 101 fulfills one of the Humanities III LASAR requirements.  It is not required for the Communication Sciences and Disorders students, but it is strongly recommended.
