Discipline of Linguistics
Some years back we wrote an FAQ pamphlet for the Linguistic Society
of America, called ''Why Major in Linguistics (and what does a linguist
do)?'' (available at www.lsadc.org/info/ling-faqs-whymajor.cfm). This
pamphlet is often distributed by undergraduate linguistics programs to
prospective majors and minors. We are currently working to update
this resource, and would like your input.
We would be happy with any feedback you might have, but the main
question we're interested in answering is: What does formal training in
linguistics prepare you to do? Specifically, we're looking for information
and ideas on career paths and jobs, including both academic and non-
academic postgraduate work, for students with an undergraduate
degree in Linguistics and/or for those who have completed an MA or
PhD in Linguistics (either formal or applied).
Please email both of us at the email addresses listed below with your
