Study Linguistics at OU

Effective communication across borders and cultures has never been as crucial as it is today, and the study of Linguistics can help penetrate the boundaries created by language differences. Linguistics students study key elements of communication, from sounds to how we generate meaning from structure. We also offer courses on acquisition, how languages have changed over time and language and society. This curriculum is supplemented by significant experience in foreign language studies. Getting a degree in linguistics opens career opportunities in speech language pathology, law, neuroscience, education, and research. Big tech companies and startups are always looking for trained linguists as well!
