Subject: Re: Query about Language Concentrations in English Depts.
The English Department at Auburn offers undergraduate concentrations in 5
areas: linguistics/rhetoric; literature; technical & professional
writing; creative writing; individually designed concentration. The
concentration consists of 20 hours (4 courses on a quarter system).
Introduction to Linguistics and Interpreting Texts are taken, in
addition, by all majors (for another 10 hours). The rest of the major
includes 20 hours of electives, for a total of 50 hours.

A colleague at the U of Tenn asks this question:
"Do you know if there are other English departments in the country that
house linguistics or English language programs so that students can
graduate with BAs in English with a concentration in language like we want
to propose? I don't feel uncomfortable sayng we'd be the only ones, the
Wegbereiters, but it seems like a question people will ask. If there are
such programs elsewhere, what kinds of requirements do they have for their
concentrations, do you know?"
Can you help us?
