Learning Outcomes: Linguistics, BALAS
Learning Outcomes for the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences Major in Linguistics
- Students will acquire substantial understanding of how languages are structured, including the organization of phonological, morphological, syntactic, and semantic systems; of the ways such systems vary from language to language; and of how they change over time.
- Students will gain a sense of how languages function: how they are processed psychologically, how they are learned, how they are effectively taught, how they express social identity, and/or how computational and other technologies may be applied to them.
- Students will learn to think analytically about language, to present and justify analyses systematically, to support claims with sound arguments and empirical evidence, and to evaluate claims about language critically.
