Gordon College is one of the nation’s premier Christian colleges and located just north of Boston. We offer students extraordinary access to leading-edge opportunities for intellectual, professional, and leadership development to address the increasingly complex challenges of a global society. Gordon stands apart from other outstanding institutions in New England by combining an exceptional education with an informed Christian faith.
The linguistics major consists of 40 credits: 28 foundational credits in the main pillars of linguistics and 12 credits of electives. Students, especially those who are interested in Bible translation, may take some or all 12 elective credits through the Summer Institute of Linguistics (SIL); classes are chosen in consultation with the codirectors of the program.
Prerequisite: One year of language instruction at Gordon or its equivalent.
