Trinity's interdisciplinary Linguistics minor, requiring 18 semester-hours and housed in the Department of Speech & Drama, provides students an opportunity to study the principles involved in the most basic and universal of human symbol systems. The minor equips students with the ability to understand the phenomenal process that we, as children, use in order to acquire our native linguistic abilities.

Classical and modern languages share with the disciplines of anthropology, computer science, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and speech pathology. Courses in the program examine the nature of language, how it is acquired, how it is used, and how it changes across time and space through these many disciplinary perspectives.

Students in the program have the opportunity to study abroad, as well as to participate in the many Sponsored student Organizations on-campus.
