The Department of Linguistics has no admission prerequisites or requirements before declaring a minor. In order to declare as a Linguistics minor, students should schedule an appointment with the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Robert Fiorentino.  

We encourage all students to plan early and carefully! All new and current Linguistics minors are encouraged to meet with a faculty advisor every semester. Meeting with an advisor early on and regularly during your academic career will ensure you are on the right track for a timely graduation and that you are taking the necessary courses. Our department is continuously growing and evolving to meet our student needs, so regular advisory meetings will give you early insight into upcoming opportunities and changes!

Prospective KU students should review the KU Admissions website.  If you are interested in visiting the department, the Visitors Center can help you plan a visit, including an appointment with a Linguistics faculty advisor.



REMINDER! To declare your Linguistics minor contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Robert Fiorentino and set-up an appointment.
