Option in Linguistics
The Option in Linguistics is open to all students, regardless of major. The Option lets you combine a series of courses from a range of departments, with linguistics as the unifying element but allowing some scope to venture into other languages and interdisciplinary areas of study.
The basis of the program is the first-year introductory courses in linguistics, and then students may choose from a variety of courses offered by the Trent Centre for Language and Linguistics, French & Francophone Studies, English Literature, Anthropology, Ancient Greek & Roman Studies, and other departments, which will allow them to pursue more specific interests in language and linguistics.
Along with a major in any other discipline at the General or Honours level, you may apply for an Option in Linguistics if you take the following 5.0 credits:
– 2.0 LING credits consisting of LING 1001H and 1002H (or 1000Y), 2000H, and 2001H
