Language and Linguistics

The Language and Linguistics major focuses on the "how and why" of all languages. It does not focus on a single language. The major is a scientific study of the origins of words, the spreading of languages and the human capacity for language. Available courses include:

  • Philosophy of Language
  • Cognitive Psychology
  • Intermediate Logic
  • Language in Society
  • Cross-Cultural Linguistics

Students majoring in Language and Linguistics often use their degrees to teach. Others pursue graduate studies, work as translators or work in international affairs.

Baylor also offers several Living-Learning Centers, which are housing opportunities designed to place students of common interests together.  Baylor offers a Baylor and Beyond Living-Learning Center that is available for all majors and classifications, but it is ideal for students interested in language, culture and engaging the world around them.
