About the Program

Linguistics is the scientific study of the function and structure of language, and is concerned with language as a general aspect of human knowledge and behavior. The department offers three major tracks�Applied Linguistics; Language, Society, and Communication; and Language and Cognition. Two honors programs are also available. In addition, the department offers a joint major and a minor, and participates in a five-year TESOL BA/EdM (certificate) program.

The Department of Linguistics offers the following languages and language programs: Chinese, German, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, and the World Languages Program.

Degree Options

The Applied Linguistics Track prepares students for careers in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), bilingual education, and language education; the program includes electives in education and a teaching internship. The BA can be a terminal degree, or can qualify the student for MA programs in applied linguistics/TESOL. Majors receive a thorough grounding in the structure of English and its function in American society, as well as practical teaching experience.

The Language, Society, and Communication Track prepares students for careers in the media, public relations, business, and industry. Majors explore the central role that language plays in society, social interaction, and communication. Required courses focus on basic issues of the structure and use of language. Electives focus on specific social and cultural contexts cross-linguistically, and on methods for studying the use of language in distinctive social contexts.

The Language and Cognition Track prepares students for careers and advanced training in linguistics, cognitive science, language education, child development, and adult language disorders. It is designed for students interested in exploring the interface between language structure and use and other human cognitive processes. Courses focus on the acquisition of language, language production and comprehension, the construction and conveyance of meaning, and the representation of language in the brain. Students may take this track as either an honors or non-honors program.

The honors programs prepare students for graduate study in linguistics, cognitive science, and fields related to cognitive science, such as psychology. Majors become proficient at all levels of linguistic analysis, and gain an overview of theoretical issues. The honors programs involve a more intensive examination of current theoretical issues in linguistics.

The special major in language and linguistics combines the study of a specific language with a deeper understanding of how language functions. The program is flexible and practical, and provides an excellent opportunity to develop students' research interests and professional plans by working directly with a faculty member of the student's choice. Students who choose this option may prepare for careers in TESOL, translation, or advanced language research.

Note: For specific information about this special major, contact the director of undergraduate studies.

Related major: Cognitive Science (see Social Sciences Interdisciplinary).

Honors Programs

The Department of Linguistics offers two honors programs - one in Language, Structure, and Theory, and one in Language and Cognition.

Language Structure and Theory: Required courses are LIN 205, LIN 207, LIN 415, LIN 432, and LIN 497 Honors Thesis (3-6 credit hours), and two or three additional upper-division courses in theoretical linguistics (24 credit hours total). Electives from department courses; may apply one course with approved linguistic content from another department (12 credit hours).

Language and Cognition: LIN 205, LIN 207, LIN 415, and LIN 432; two of LIN 320, LIN 355, LIN 417, LIN 455; two of LIN 356, LIN 413, LIN 421, LIN 438; LIN 497 Honors Thesis (3 credit hours) (27 credit hours total). Electives from department courses, and one course with language and cognition content from another department (9 credit hours).

Opportunities for Undergraduate Research and Practical Experience

The linguistics department offers a teaching internship open to students from any major. Interns are placed in one of the Buffalo public schools as teacher's aides or tutors, either during the school day or in after-school programs. School venues include Spanish/English bilingual schools, international schools, and urban schools, and involve children from pre-kindergarten through high school. Students interested in the internship program should contact the director of undergraduate studies.

Career Opportunities/Further Studies

Graduates with a degree in linguistics find employment as teachers, translators, interpreters, editors, researchers, or literacy advocates; or work in foreign service, education, language institutes, or research libraries.

Linguistics (Applied) B.A/ED.M. in Tesol (Certification Program) - B.A./ED.M.

About the Certification Program

The Linguistics department, in conjunction with the Teacher Education Institute and the Learning and Instruction department of the Graduate School of Education, offers a five-year program leading to the BA in Linguistics (Applied), New York State Certification for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (K-12), and a master�s degree in Education (TESOL). This program involves completing the BA in linguistics (applied track); the TEI Minor in Education which provides some of the coursework for state certification; and the master�s degree in Education (TESOL). The supervised teaching required for certification is also done at the graduate level. This combined degree is for very focused students who have decided early in their university careers that their professional goal is to teach English to Speakers of Other Languages in New York State public schools. The program is unique in the state of New York, and provides the optimal venue for students who wish to be in the classroom teaching in the shortest amount of time.

Acceptance Criteria

Students must first apply (typically during the first semester of the sophomore year or sooner) to the linguistics BA program.
Minimum GPA of 2.0 overall.
Minimum GPA of 2.5 in the prerequisite courses.
One letter of recommendation from a professor, and a short statement of purpose.

Advising Notes

To continue in the program, students must be admitted to the TEI program as a minor in education (typically at the beginning of the second semester of the junior year), once they complete at least 75 credit hours with a minimum GPA of 3.0. Other requirements include (1) two letters of recommendation from faculty, (2) written entrance examinations, (3) two oral interviews, and (4) completion of LAI 350 Introduction to Education with a grade of B or better. When students reach their eighth semester, they are administratively admitted into the EdM TESOL degree program, assuming successful progress up to this point. Students should work closely with Dr. Jaeger regarding appropriate general education courses to take toward fulfilling the New York State certification requirements.
