Linguistics Minor

For information, contact the Department of English, 356 Bachelor Hall, 513-529-5221.

Linguistics is the study of language. Linguists look at how people use language and try to find the rules that govern that use. Because linguistics touches so many areas of study, a minor in linguistics is useful for students majoring in foreign languages, English, sociology, anthropology, psychology, mathematics, communication, philosophy, or computer science. A minimum 2.00 cumulative GPA is required to earn the minor.
