Why Linguistics at NC State?
Studying language in North Carolina is like dying and going to Dialect Heaven.
- Walt Wolfram
Linguistics research at NC State puts students on the cutting-edge of the field. Whether they are collecting data from one of our many field sites both in and out of North Carolina, learning advanced analytical methods from our decorated and interdisciplinary faculty, or traveling the country to present at professional conferences, our students practice and preach #ThinkAndDo.
