The joint Linguistics and Philosophy major combines a solid foundation in both disciplines with an interdisciplinary focus on understanding the human capacity for language. Through rigorous training in a variety of theoretical, empirical, and analytical approaches, students acquire the knowledge and skills they need for in-depth exploration of fundamental questions related to meaning, intention, and reference. The small size of the program enables close personal and intellectual contact between students and faculty, and allows student majors to design a course of study that reflects their individual goals and interests. The Linguistics and Philosophy major provides excellent preparation for graduate study in the humanities, social sciences, and computer science or for professional training in law, education, or communications.
