The undergraduate major in Linguistics introduces students to the traditions and techniques of research into the structure, functions, and histories of languages. Since the study of language draws from and contributes to many other fields of study, students choosing the Linguistics major are strongly urged to achieve a more than superficial acquaintance with some related but independent field: cognitive science, anthropology, mathematics, computer science, philosophy, rhetoric, English literature, or the literature of a foreign language. Linguistics may have concentrations in general linguistics and language.

UC Davis
FOREIGN LANGUAGE:  One course beyond the 15 quarter unit requirement of the College of Letters and Science, in the same language used  to fulfill the college requirement

UC Riverside
Foreign language proficiency equivalent to 6 quarters (usually through 4th semester), including at least 3rd quarter (usually through second semester) proficiency in ONE language.  Placement into language courses may be determined by UCR faculty evaluation of the student's appropriate language level.


UC Santa Barbara
Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics may choose one of the following emphases: Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Slavic, Spanish, or Sociocultural.

Four semesters (or six quarters) of one foreign language.

To pursue an emphasis in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Slavic, or Spanish, the two years of foreign language should be in the corresponding language. Some language emphases may require additional advanced work in the language.

In addition to the above language  requirement, the completion of the second semester (or third quarter) of a second foreign language is required
