Program Overview

Majoring in linguistics opens a world of possibilities for your future career. Linguistics, the study of human language, is intrinsically interdisciplinary and gives you educational opportunities across the academic spectrum. In the Carson-Newman linguistics program, you’ll pursue this field of study in both a liberal arts tradition and a Christian context. You’ll be introduced to the various subfields of linguistics, and you’ll also take coursework in communication, education, English, foreign languages, philosophy, psychology and sociology.

Carson-Newman's linguistics program is small by design. You’ll work closely with peers and professors to develop theoretical and practical knowledge, preparing you for graduate school and professional life.

  • Studying world language and linguistics at Carson-Newman has had a profound effect on my life, both overtly (I can now speak three languages and live in Austria), and subtly (giving me new perspectives on viewing common problems).
