University of California, Santa Barbara
Linguistics - Language and Speech Technologies Emphasis B.A.

Linguistics is the study of the uniquely human tool of language. All students majoring in linguistics take core courses in phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax and language change. They also choose an additional course in semantics, discourse or language acquisition. Students must complete a minimum of two years of study of one foreign language and one year of study of another. Students in the Language and Speech Technologies Emphasis complete a range of courses that cover the structural analysis of language, quantitative and statistical methods for detecting sequential and hierarchical patterns, and computational approaches for parsing and synthesizing speech and language. This emphasis is ideal for students planning to pursue careers in many aspects of tech-oriented industries, such as software development, search algorithms and analytics, voice recognition, language-based user interfaces, and speech synthesis.
