Subject: Re: Gen Ed Linguistics
I posted the question last spring and got a few replies. There was nothing
particularly consistent about how institutions use linguistics in the
general education requirements. In the Univ. System of GA, we can use
linguistics in Area IV of the core--the miscellaneous section in which
courses are chosen by individual departments. The assistant dean at UGA
explained that no one has ever tried to make linguistics count as a social
science because the course is taught by members of the English department.
So, counting as practically nothing, my new class this fall was allowed to
make with a dozen students.
