About This Program

Giving you the information you need to make an educated decision about your English degree is a top priority for us, and so is delivering strong programs without breaking your bank. MSU Denver is among the most affordable four-year universities in the nation.

The Linguistics minor offers the following concentrations:

  • Linguistics
  • Language

The language and linguistics minors offer concepts about, theories of, and analytical techniques in natural language. The concentrations represent an intellectual discipline in itself and simultaneously serve the interests of future teachers, students of literature and writing, and others who have a continuing fascination with language as language. The minors require students to engage in vigorous, progressively more explicit and precise analysis and synthesis as they examine facts and fallacies about the miracle of language.
