This program introduces you to the scientific study of human language, its structure, its diversity, and its communicative properties. By analyzing linguistic structure and identifying patterns of language use from around the world, you develop an understanding of how languages change, how they are used by communities, and how they are acquired. Linguistics offers an understanding of how languages are structured and how languages are used in communicative and interactional contexts.
