Linguistics Program

Linguistics is the study of language both as a faculty of mind and as a social institution. The linguistics major and minor at William and Mary are administered through the Roy R. Charles Center as interdisciplinary programs.

An interdisciplinary major in linguistics provides the student with comprehensive exposure to a range of topics concerning the structure, acquisition, and cultural use of language. Linguistics students learn how to use both the analytical methods that are proper to the formal study of language structures as well as a variety of investigative methods deriving from interdisciplinary perspectives on the function and significance of language in human affairs.
