There are many opportunities for undergraduates to engage in linguistic research, both inside and outside of classes. Aside from the State’s natural laboratory, students also have access to the Language Analysis and Experimentation Laboratories, where they can conduct research on phonetics (the details of how speech sounds are produced), language perception, reading, computer models of language, and various other topics. Other library and funding resources are also available.
Many undergraduate courses also include Linguistics Beyond the Classroom activities as an opportunity to explore how the material learned in class can relate to current research being conducted in the fields of Linguistics and Second Language Studies. Visit LBC to see current opportunities.
