Linguistics Society

****NOTE: As of January 23, 2015, the Linguistics program is now housed in the Department of World Languages, Literatures and Cultures in the College of Liberal Arts. Web content will be moving soon!



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:  Foreign Language, TESOL, General Linguistics, or Computer Science.

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, with interests in world languages, endangered language documentation and descriptive work, cognitive science, English dialectology, and more! Join us on Facebook:

Spring 2015 activities

A group from UCA will be attending SECOL 82 - the 82nd Meeting of the SouthEastern Conference on Linguistics, in Raleigh, NC on April 9-11, 2015! If you're a Linguistics major or minor, ask an RSO officer or advisor about competing for funding.


Our book club selection for Spring 2015 has yet to be voted on.
