Using Existing Resources To Develop an Undergraduate Linguistics Major. Linguistics in the Undergraduate Curriculum, Appendix 3.
Ohala, Manjari; Zwicky, Arnold
Issues in the development of an undergraduate linguistics major are discussed for linguists wanting to initiate such a major at their institution. The discussion, which assumes the pre-existence of service courses in linguistics, addresses administrators' questions and concerns in deciding whether to implement a major program, including: the objectives of such a program other than preparing students for advanced study in linguistics; the program's administrative status; resources required for initiating a major (courses and faculty, crosslisting of courses for graduate and undergraduate credit, library resources, equipment, and other specialized material); and differences between the proposed degree program and other similar programs offered in the geographic vicinity.
