Program Information & Forms


Keep on track for graduation by planning your courses using the Linguistics Major or Minor check sheet.

Linguistics Major Checksheet

Linguistics Minor Checksheet


When students declare Linguistics as their major, they must sign a contract.  The contract assures that students are aware of the graduation requirement to complete a Linguistics Portfolio, which we use for assessment of our program.  The contract also requires students to choose which of the four tracks they will complete. 

Student Contract for Linguistics Majors 


All linguistics majors turn in a portfolio that demonstrates their growth and proficiency in the core areas of linguistics and the student’s chosen track area.  The portfolio must be received by the major advisor two weeks before the student’s projected graduation date.  The portfolio will be assessed by the rubric below by professors in the Department of Writing and affiliated departments as required.
