About

The focus of the Linguistics program from Boston College does not lie alone in the acquisition of language skills, but rather in learning to analyze linguistic phenomena with a view toward making significant generalizations about the nature of language.

Overview

Students majoring in Linguistics at Boston College build their programs around a specific area of emphasis. In consultation with the faculty, students design a program of study tailored to the individual interests and goals. 

Typical areas of emphasis include philology (the historical and comparative study of ancient languages), psycholinguistics, and language acquisition.
