Date: Tue, 9 May 1995 08:00:12 -0400 From: Wayne Glowka Subject: Linguistics in the Core Curriculum With thanks to all who responded to my query on textbooks, let me ask another couple of questions. For those outside the University System of Georgia: Is linguistics an option in your core curriculum? Specifically, is it an option in the social science selections (with psychology, sociology, economics, anthropology)? If so, is it an option for all students or just students in certain majors? For those in the University System of Georgia: Does anyone know why linguistics is not in Area III of the core? However, I see, for example, that LIN 210 is a general option for what looks like Area IV for degrees in the School of Arts and Sciences at UGA. Has anyone ever attempted to have linguistics included in Area III? Is there a system-level prejudice against linguistics that I should know about? Would anyone be interested in supporting a movement to include linguistics in the core?
