Description

Linguistic anthropology provides a familiarity with one of the four sub-fields of anthropology. The relevant courses include introductory content on the structure of human languages, and students will become better acquainted with the way in which sound systems and grammars work across the world's languages. Just as crucially, the courses demonstrate how empirically oriented approaches to the study of human languages can reveal crucial insights about human cognition, culture, and history.
