Linguistics is the study of language: how languages are constructed and why, where they came from, and how they got that way.
The field of linguistics delineates the breadth and limitations of the use of language, straddling the sciences, social sciences, and humanities. It is highly useful to anyone learning another language, intending to teach English or other languages, or studying other cultures, human cognition, or child development. Linguistics at Oxy is an interdisciplinary minor that combines classes in linguistics with courses in various departments including East Asian Languages and Cultures, Cognitive Science, Education, Psychology, and Spanish & French Studies.
