1-on-1 learning and original research projects customized around students' interests
Students who enjoy looking at language analytically may enjoy a linguistics mentorship, which allows students to ask questions and test hypotheses about language and how language is interconnected with other aspects of society. From examining how children acquire language to analyzing how language influences the way humans think about and interact with the world, linguists employ scientific methods to study sounds, words, sentences and meaning. Linguistics mentorships might involve comparative studies between different cultures, offering students a powerful lens through which to understand differences. Linguistics mentorships build valuable skills including analytical reasoning and critical thinking.
