The University of Central Arkansas was the first institution of higher education in Arkansas to offer a degree in Linguistics. Our Linguistics majors choose between four tracks. Emphasis in a Foreign Language, TESOL, General Linguistics, and Computational Linguistics.
Students of Linguistics at UCA have formed the UCA Linguistics Society-- a recognized RSO (Registered Student Organization) of the University of Central Arkansas. We welcome all who are interested to become members. If you want to officially join the society, please contact one of our officers, Dr. Ramon Escamilla or Dr. Lynn Burley to pay the $5/semester dues; it may come in handy on your CV someday.
We comprise a diverse group of people -- many are interested in tribal languages and saving endangered languages. Other members are interested in formal logic, language philosophy, and computational Linguistics. Overall, this group is devoted to promoting the study of Linguistics at UCA.
