Linguistics is the scientific study of human language—its structure and diversity, how it’s learned and understood, and how it shapes cultural practices. Linguistics majors study all aspects of human language, from the way humans form sounds and gestures to the use of language as a form of group identity.
The Media Studies minor emphasizes the creative and analytical skills needed to make sense of current and future trends in media, and to gain a deep understanding of the history and development of various means and forms of communication. Explorations of media theory, history, criticism, practices, popular culture, technology and emerging cultures are enhanced by practical training in media design, storytelling, digital art, online community engagement, documentary filmmaking and social media.
