Overview

Gain insight into how language is processed by the human mind and by computers; learn about cultural and linguistic diversity through the study of how language reflects meaning and world views; and discover how language reflects unique characteristics of humanity by connecting linguistic structure with the functional meanings that are used in communication. You will also learn how to analyze language and apply your analyses through your coursework in second language acquisition and assessment, language teaching, computer processing of human language, and communication disorders.

A linguistics degree from Iowa State will prepare you for a career in both academic and non-academic areas such as language teaching and assessment, computational analysis of language, speech pathology, translation, and government work.
