- The B.A. Linguistics Major at Ohio University offers a view of communication and language systems from multiple vantage points. Sociolinguistics and Psycholinguistics integrate the study of societal organization and psychological applications of language while theoretical study of Linguistics exposes students to discrete areas of language form and function across languages and within larger language families.
- Students can apply their developing understanding of language organization and utilization via application courses ranging from Forensic Linguistics to Historical Linguistics to Language Documentation. Language is presented as a tool for connecting, for identifying and for exposing less salient aspects of who and what we are as well as where we’ve been.
