to the Department of Linguistics & Germanic, Slavic, Asian and African Languages.
Our department focuses on three areas: linguistics, cultural studies and language learning and teaching. We are dedicated to quality teaching, research and outreach.
The faculty places great emphasis on the education of students, from first-year undergraduates through advanced doctoral candidates and on to active research that not only explores cutting-edge theoretical and applied issues but is also closely linked to educational goals and engages students in the classroom. Collectively, departmental teaching and research reflect continuing concern for the local, national and global community.
By the very interdisciplinary nature of the fields represented in the department, issues of how language reflects the nature of the human mind, how language is acquired, the interaction of language and culture, minority perspective, diversity and internationalization lie at the center of our activities.
