Program Description: The Linguistics Program, which draws its faculty from several language related departments at our beautiful campus in Brooklyn, New York, offers students training in understanding and analyzing language and covers the full scope of the field of linguistics through an interdisciplinary approach. We offer students a bachelor of arts degree with a major and a minor in linguistics. In addition, students who choose to double-major with linguistics as their second major may be able to apply up to three courses from their first major towards the linguistics requirements.
