Welcome to the Program in Linguistics
Emory's Program in Linguistics represents the contemporary field of linguistics as it is situated at the intersection of the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Our central mission is to promote wider understanding of the centrality of language to the human condition, to foster an intellectual climate for cutting-edge interdisciplinary research on language, and to introduce students to the scientific and critical study of human language and communication.

- 19 core faculty
- 109 students are majoring in Linguistics, Psychology & Linguistics, or Spanish & Linguistics; and a Linguistics concentration in Quantitative Sciences
- 20 Linguistics courses offered (includes 2 Directed Research classes), with 356 students currently enrolled.
- Fall 2020 Courses as of July 2020.
