You may declare the Linguistics minor online or by meeting with the Arts and Sciences undergraduate advisor for Linguistics. Dr. Allison Sedey (for either of these options, click here).


Once you have declared the major, you should meet with a LING faculty member when selecting your courses for the upcoming semester. You may meet with any faculty member whose office hours are convenient for you (all majors will receive an email list of current LING faculty office hours). Thereafter, you will be required to meet with a LING faculty member during the registration periods of your junior and senior years (in other words, starting at the end of your sophomore year). After advising you, the faculty member will lift your advising flag so that you can register for classes for the coming semester. You will also need to download the fillable LING Major Planner and Record form. Keep this form updated for your own records and bring it with you whenever you meet with a LING faculty advisor. If you are advised remotely, you should attach it to the email that you send the faculty member who is advising you.
