Linguistics at Grinnell is offered as a concentration in which you explore how to describe and analyze language through the lens of several disciplines. Concentrators take core courses in theoretical linguistics; elective courses drawn from anthropology, computer science, education, English, the foreign languages, philosophy, and psychology; and an advanced seminar or senior thesis. The concentration complements a variety of majors, and the analytical skills you develop can be applied to graduate study or to careers in writing, publishing, advertising, computing, government, teaching, and more.
