Courses Outside Linguistics

Many departments in the Faculty of Arts offer courses outside linguistics that complement our Honours, Major, and Minor programs in Linguistics and Speech Sciences.

The following courses are recommended electives outside of linguistics. Note that depending on your program (e.g. major in linguistics, Honours in Speech Science, etc.) you may be allowed to take a certain number of non-LING credits as part of your program; the following is a list of recommended courses that complement our programs and may be acceptable. You will still need to contact an Undergrad Advisor to discuss how they fit into your program and, if they are approved, to have them counted toward your program, instead of as electives, on your Degree Navigator report. Any course not listed here has not been vetted by our advisors, and you should contact an Undergrad Advisor *before* taking the course to discuss whether it could be applied toward your program.
