Careers in Linguistics
A linguistics degree is an extremely marketable degree, whether your goal is to pursue further education in graduate school or to join the workforce immediately. Alumni Careers shows you the type of careers that graduates of our program now work in. The skills that the study of linguistics enhances are particularly sought after by today's employers, starting with the general benefits of a liberal arts degree.

Those who are also interested in training to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) can take advantage of a very unusual opportunity for undergraduates, that of teaching their own ESL class for an entire semester in our ESL Practicum. With this valuable teaching experience and the methods classes that prepare students for it, graduates can take advantage of the many opportunities to teach English in different countries abroad as well as in the U.S.
