Department Chair: Eileen Fitzpatrick, PhD

Linguistics is the scientific study of natural human language; it contributes significantly to our understanding of what it means to be human. As such, linguistics forms an indispensable part of a liberal arts education. It is a broad field, covering all aspects of cognitive and social functioning. The Linguistics Department offers a wide variety of both theoretical and applied courses in linguistics on both the graduate and undergraduate levels. We hope you find this visit to the department helpful.
