Honors in Linguistics
In the spring or summer before senior year, eligible students majoring in linguistics are invited to participate in the honors program, under the supervision of a faculty advisor. Criteria include completion of prerequisite and core coursework and sufficiently high grades in the major and overall. Students then undertake the research and writing of a thesis in conjunction with 2 additional linguistics courses beyond those required for the major. These courses may be selected from LING 398-0 Undergraduate Seminar in Linguistics, LING 399-0 Independent Study, and 400-level courses.
Students whose theses and grades meet program criteria are recommended to the college for graduation with honors. For more information see the director of undergraduate studies and the catalog entry for Honors in the Major.
