How does language work? What are the common properties of all human languages? What happens in someone's brain when they're learning a language?
As a linguistics major, you'll explore these questions and many more as you discover how to analyze language and study it scientifically.
You'll dive deep into courses such as Syntax, Typology & Universals; Psycholinguistics; and Bilingualism. You'll design innovative experiments and uncover new patterns in language. And when you're ready to pursue even tougher questions, you may join Bucknell's Linguistics Lab, or do supervised research in theoretical grammar.
Through this journey, you'll gain the analytical skills needed for job success in a wide range of careers, including computational linguistics, speech-language pathology, education, law, business, academia and nonprofit work.
