Program Type: AA Degree

Division: C & I Committee Member - Non-Faculty

Program Description:
Responsible Divisions: Languages, English, Social Sciences, Performing and Communication Arts

This program of study provides students with insight into the study of language and language behavior. The theoretical foundations of linguistics provide the basis for gaining insight into language structure and use. Multidisciplinary in nature, this area of emphasis includes social, psychological, and historical aspects of language. The goal of this field of study is to develop a student’s capacity to observe, assess, and analyze how language operates. Students who complete this area of emphasis are prepared for advanced study in Linguistics and Foreign Languages at CSU, UC, and private universities. Employment in education, research, communication, psychology, speech pathology, cultural studies, and child development typically requires an advanced degree.

PLEASE NOTE: The courses that universities and colleges require for transfer vary. When selecting courses for transfer purposes, students should consult with Counseling Services to determine the particular transfer requirements of specific transfer institutions.
