Linguistics is the study of how languages work, change, are learned, and are used. Linguists, therefore, see language as an intricate system of interacting semantic, grammatical, phonological, and pragmatic rules and principles to study, describe, and ultimately to understand. The concerns in linguistics overlap with those of other language sciences, making linguistics a truly interdisciplinary field. A bachelor's degree is the minimum formal education required, and qualifies one for entry-level positions in business, nonprofit organizations, and government. Depending upon the student’s career interests, and due to the major’s emphasis on analysis, argumentation and reasoning, and communication, a linguistics major is may pursue a professional degree in law, business, government or education.
