Linguistics Courses

The major/minor in Linguistics supports and enhances a liberal arts education, in particular in its focus on the unity and interconnectedness of knowledge, as well as by its encouragement of interdisciplinary approaches to learning. It also opens up opportunities for exploring links between faith and knowledge, for example in the consideration of how God's revelation was "transmitted" through two different cultures and languages; also how modern Christian missionaries can more sensitively and effectively reach cultures—through their languages—by combining the detachment of  mere "data collection" with the emotional and spiritual involvement of sacrificial love as shown in I Corinthians 13.

Students majoring in a foreign language will naturally benefit from a minor or double major in Linguistics; also students majoring in Philosophy, English, Bible, History, the Classics minor, Sociology, Psychology, and Education.
