I will be entering college in the Fall of 2016 and I plan to major in linguistics. How do I determine if a school has a good linguistics program?

The most important thing are the teachers/professors, look at who is working in the department and if they cover topics that you are interested in. You can also have a look at the QS ranking by subject, they give an overview of the best universities to study linguistics.

Good luck with your choice!
