After over 30 years of existence as an interdisciplinary program at the University of Georgia, Linguistics has now been promoted to departmental status. This achievement is the culmination of years of effort on the part of our faculty, staff, and students. We are grateful for the help and support that we have received from other departments and from the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences in this process.

Thanks to all of our friends and alumni for your continuing support, and we look forward to future success and growth as the new Department of Linguistics!
