The World Languages and Linguistics program at Minot State University seeks to promote an appreciation for the rich linguistic diversity in the world by inviting you to partake in its vibrant tapestry.  Along with strengthening your mental acuity, the study of another language offers a hands-on way to experience another culture.  Since the two - language and culture - are impossible to separate, learning to express yourself in a different language enriches your view of the world and deepens your understanding of its inhabitants.  Upon completing the concentration (101, 102, 201, 202), you should be at the intermediate proficiency level of the ACTFL scale (https://www.languagetesting.com/actfl-proficiency-scale).  If you decide to minor, you can anticipate being at the advanced level of the same scale.

Our linguistics coursework also offers you the opportunity to scientifically study the nature of language, initiating you into exciting current research, foundational theories of the field, and even providing you the opportunities to engage in research yourself!
