As a discipline offered by Bryn Mawr College, the Linguistics program examines the structural components of sound, form, and meaning, and the precise interplay between them. Modern linguistic inquiry stresses analytical and argumentation skills, which prepares students for future pursuits in any field in which such skills are essential. 


The Linguistics program offered by Bryn Mawr College is also relevant to other disciplines, such as psychology, philosophy, mathematics, computer science, sociology and anthropology, and some of our students choose to double major with one of them.

  • Examine the structural components of sound, form, and meaning, and the precise interplay between them.
  • Interact with the field of linguistics through a series of foundation courses in linguistics theory and methodology.
  • Hone analytical and argumentation skills, and prepare for future pursuits in any field to which such skills are essential, including psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, mathematics, computer science, computational linguistics, sociology, and anthropology.
  • Apply theoretical and methodological tools to the analysis of linguistic data, particularly in forming and testing hypotheses, and arrive at conclusions that the data and arguments support.
  • Understand how language influences the way we interact with each other and with the larger world around us.
  • Investigate how people acquire their knowledge about language, how this knowledge interacts with other cognitive processes and how it varies across speakers and geographic regions.
