Ask Your Question

Revision history [back]

Is there anything that you can do in preparation for pursuing an undergraduate degree in linguistics?

I'm a rising high school senior, and I intend to major in linguistics in college, though I have yet to decide for sure where I want to go, and of course haven't started applying to universities, as not even early action options are open at this time of year.

So, my question is this; is there anything specific that I can do to prepare to be a linguistics major? I'm taking AP Spanish this coming year, and am taking various other AP classes in an attempt to get as many of my core requirements out of the way, but I want to know if there is anything outside of school I can do, any books or research that would help me.

Thank you in advance, even if there is, in fact, nothing to be done.
