Welcome to Linguistics at Haverford
Bi-Co students may major or minor in the Tri-Co Linguistics department (Bryn Mawr, Haverford and Swarthmore).
There are 7,000 languages in the world, and we're interested in studying all of them. Linguistics is the scientific study of language—we develop techniques to explore patterns that all human languages have in common and investigate the ways in which each is unique. Our explorations yield insights not only about languages, but also about the nature of the human mind.
Linguistics makes unique contributions to a wide range of inquiries ranging from interdisciplinary studies in cognitive science, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, to multidisciplinary studies of the mind and brain.
February 13 9:30a.m. - 5p.m.
The Tri-College Undergraduate Linguistics Conference features interdisciplinary work by young scholars from across the United States and Canada.
A keynote lecture by Richard P. Meier, Professor of Linguistics, The University of Texas at Austin, concludes the day. All events are free and open to the public.
