Minor Requirements

Note that the UGA Bulletin is the official source for all degree requirements. In case of any discrepancies between the information here and the Bulletin, the Bulletin takes precedence.

The Minor in Linguistics requires a total of 5 courses (15 hours) at the 3000/4000-level. LING 2100 (or LING 2100H, LING 2100E) is the prerequisite for all upper-division LING courses.

Required courses (to be taken as soon as possible after completion of LING 2100(H/E) and declaration of minor):

  1. LING3060 Phonetics and Phonology
  2. LING3150 Generative Syntax

Choose 2 courses from the following list:

  • LING3250 Morphology
  • LING3830 Languages of the World
  • LING4022 Advanced Phonetics and Phonology
  • LING4160 Compositional Semantics
  • LING(ENGL)4170 Second Language Acquisition
  • LING4690 Historical Linguistics
  • LING4710 Languages in Contact
  • LING(CMLT)4740 Discourse Analysis
  • LING(ANTH)4860 Sociolinguistics
  • LING(ENGL)4886 Text and Corpus Analysis
  • LING(CMSD)3120 Study of Language Development OR LLED5730 First and Second Language Acquisition and Development

Choose any 1 additional LING course at the 3000/4000-level.

Courses that are used to satisfy minor requirements may not be used simultaneously to satisfy Core curriculum requirements or the requirements for another major. This is especially important for students who are majoring in departments that have cross-listed courses with Linguistics.

As a note: Remember that taking just 3 more LING courses would allow you to complete the requirements for the Linguistics major. If you have the time, consider majoring instead of minoring.
