Honors Minor in Linguistics

The Honors Linguistics minor is a variant of the regular Linguistics Minor. The minor course requirements involve five courses in Linguistics, with 2000H one of the required courses. Each minor must include at least one 4000 core course plus one other Linguistics course at 4000 level or higher. This requirement that one of the electives must be upper-level is the difference between the regular minor and the honors minor. The electives should be chosen in consultation with the advisors in both the major and minor departments to meet a student’s particular needs and interests.
