Linguistics Programs in Undergraduate Education

In September of 2010, faculty from nine ACM colleges gathered to discuss Linguistics programs and courses on our campuses.

The primary goals were to come away from this workshop with ideas for:

  1. Determining which courses should be required for a strong undergraduate major and minor in Linguistics;
  2. Designing courses that best support that program; and
  3. Meeting staffing needs of interdisciplinary programs.

In addition, the workshop organizers hoped to establish a coalition of faculty teaching Linguistics at ACM schools. By working in collaboration with and establishing good communication among ACM Linguistics faculty, we may identify ways to share resources across campuses, such as guest speaker exchanges among ACM faculty, or pooling resources to bring in outside speakers. Below are resources we have gathered from participants in the workshop.
