New Major Emphasis/Minor: Speech and Language Technologies

The Department of Linguistics is pleased to announce the introduction of two new programs: a Linguistics Major, B.A. – Language and Speech Technologies Emphasis, and a Minor in Language and Speech Technologies.

Students in these programs complete a range of courses that cover the structural analysis of language, quantitative and statistical methods for detecting sequential and hierarchical patterns, and computational approaches for parsing and synthesizing speech and language. The emphasis and minor are both ideal for students interested in employing skills of linguistic analysis for computational and statistical applications.
