Linguistics is by its very nature interdisciplinary having significant ties to and impact on fields like psychology, philosophy, education, language teaching, sociology, anthropology, computer science, and others. Students in linguistics develop strong observational, analytical and critical thinking skills; they gain valuable experience drafting hypotheses and collecting and analyzing data; and they understand how language functions not only as a communication system but also as a social institution, all of which can enhance their employability, expand their career options, and set them up for success in graduate studies.
