    Linguistics is the study of language, how people use it, and what rules govern that use. Just as chemists examine elements in seeking clues to the structure of matter, linguists analyze data from languages and observe behavior of speakers in attempting to formulate principles that govern people's knowledge and use of their language.

    The linguistics major emphasizes interdisciplinary study, with half of the required hours consisting of basic linguistics courses from the Department of English and the remainder consisting of more specialized linguistics courses in such areas as foreign languages, systems analysis, anthropology, psychology, education, and communications.

    A joint effort of the Department of English and Office of International Education, Miami's newest semester abroad program gives students the opportunity to study in any of the 22 departments at Royal Holloway, University of London during the fall or spring semester or for an entire academic year.
