Ask-A-Linguist Message Details

Subject: Linguistics and Math or Linguistics and Programming
Question: I am wondering whether it would be more valuable to a student who intends on studying Theoretical or Descriptive Linguistics to complement their studies with courses in Mathematics and Statistics or with courses in Programming and Computer Science, if they do not plan on becoming a computational linguist, but rather want to broaden their education to develop a stronger applicable skill set.
