The Department of Linguistics offers both technical courses in formal linguistics (200+ level) and courses that do not require technical background in linguistics and address issues in human society from a linguist's perspective (100 level).
The 200+ level courses are the courses of the major and minor, and require LING 110: Intro to Linguistic Analysis, which is the gateway course into the major.
The 100 level courses are aimed a general non-technical audience interested in contemporary issues with a perspective on language and society that is informed by the insights contemporary linguistic analysis brings to our understanding of human language communities.
