About Linguistics at University of Alberta

Why study Linguistics?

Linguistics is the scientific study of human language. It explores the many intricate rules that govern and structure all human languages, including grammar and phonetics. Linguistics also offers understanding of the physical, mental, and social processes that surround all verbal and non-verbal communication.

If you've ever wondered how the brain processes language, how infants learn to speak, why different people have different accents, how languages have evolved over time, or how we can preserve endangered languages, then linguistics is for you!

This major can also be taken as part of a BA Honors degree.
