Language and the Mind is a cross-disciplinary approach.
Students study the human language, combining courses in psychology, linguistics, and modern languages. LMIN connects human cognition, language processes, verbal and written language structures, and language acquisition. Students will acquire foundational skills and knowledge which will prepare them for careers in areas such as speech pathology, education, translation/interpretation, and journalism, among others.
Language and the Mind is available only as a minor.
Language and the Mind students select from a variety of Psychology, Linguistics, and Language courses.
