Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Interdisciplinary Majors and Minors

Advisor: Richard E. Morris, Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures

The minor in Linguistic Studies exposes students to the many ways that humans use and interact with language. Students are presented with a comprehensive view of how linguistics is examined in the disciplines of anthropology, English, psychology, communication disorders, classical and modern languages, and philosophy. Courses are grouped into four categories: foundation, formation, language, and electives. Upon completing the minor, the student should have broad knowledge of linguistics and linguistic principles, as well as specific knowledge relating to a chosen language of focus. The minor requires 18 credit hours.

NOTE: Relevant directed readings, independent study, special topics, or internships in any pertinent department may be pursued towards the minor with prior approval of the minor advisor. Students with transfer credit in a modern or classical language not offered at Middle Tennessee State University may request a substitution from the advisor.

Foundation (3 hours)


Alternately the student may choose any formation course as an elective.
