The Linguistics Program at Northeastern aims to provide students with a strong general foundation in the field of linguistics; one which gives students a better understanding of the complexity of language while also preparing them for entry into language-related fields. Students further expand their knowledge by taking elective courses in the field, and may also opt to take part in study-abroad, dialogue of civilizations, domestic and international co-ops, and various research opportunities.

Degrees and Programs

Our program is structured so that students gain core knowledge about the internal structures that make up language as well as the external rules followed by speakers as they use language in its socio-cultural context, thus giving students a broad basis of understanding.
