Minor in Applied Linguistics

Applied Linguistics is an interdisciplinary field that investigates and offers solutions to language-related problems in the world. Applied linguistics relies on the theories and findings of linguistics, together with the experiences and needs of language users, to engage real-world issues at the intersections of language and society, language and education, and language and power. The Minor in Applied Linguistics exposes students to a field of study that allows them to think critically about the language learning process, and to build a deeper understanding of how languages are both learned and taught successfully.

No more than 6 hours from the student’s major can be counted towards the Minor in Applied Linguistics
