Linguistics at Miami University
Support the Program
Linguistics is an interdisciplinary program (major and minor offered) open to all Miami students. The study of linguistics offers students a variety of critical approaches to language study, including comparative and applied linguistics, anthropological, philological, sociolinguistic, and/or historical approaches from ancient times to the present. The Global Miami Plan encourages students to engage the world. Learning about their native tongue and languages of other parts of the world enhance their understanding of themselves and their global neighbors.
Linguistics is a flexible program that encourages students to pursue their particular interests across a wide range of disciplines and periods. In addition to classes offered in a wide variety of departments, we at Miami sponsor extra- and co-curricular speakers and events. Your generous support of these endeavors help to ensure that this is at all possible. Please take a few minutes and consider how valuable a resource this is to our students and help us continue these efforts with a gift.
There are several ways you can help us.
These gifts allow the program to apply your gift to the area of greatest need.
- Sponsor symposia or a speakers' fund for topics related to any aspect of linguistic study
- Grants to offset travel expenses for students to attend conferences in the United States or to pursue study abroad
- Scholarships in linguistics to recruit the very best students to attend Miami and to reward excellence at Miami
- Create a classroom enrichment fund to support the purchase of media
Please contact Evan Lichtenstein at the Miami University Division of University Advancement at (513) 529-1263 to find out how you can provide support for these areas.
